The RPCHC’S Children and Family services is proud to announce the Youth Enrichment Academy or YEA!.

Funding for this initiative was generously provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s SEED Grant. The initiative reinforces our mandate to create a healthy environment for youth to thrive and prosper. The YEA! program is designed to equip middle school students in the Regent Park area with the skills/tools to achieve success at the secondary and post-secondary level. YEA! will function as a safe place for students to learn, congregate, and get exposed to experience based learning during the summer months. Students from 12-14 years of age will be exposed to a summer of “hands on” learning opportunities, trips to post secondary institutions, science related activities, opportunities to engage in their community, and gain a stronger sense of overall civic awareness. Various workshops will expose virtual reality, urban planning, high school readiness, scholarships and financial planning, creative writing, recreation and nutrition, and post-secondary planning.

The YEA! program will provide students with an opportunity to learn and engage in a unique learning environment. The programming will be primarily delivered at our 585 Dundas Street East location inside the Daniels Spectrum. The program will run from daily from Monday to Friday starting July 6th to August 14th, 2020.

With additional funding the YEA! initiative will be expanded to provide after school and weekend programming to middle school students from September 2020 to June 2021.
