HERE'S WHAT WE DO IN CALGARY:
Campus Life is a school-based outreach program that volunteers with school athletic teams, carries out student team-building rallies, and is involved in other activities on and off school campuses. Staff and volunteers mentor youth through sport by challenging and encouraging them to reach their full potential, supporting them in their development, teaching them life skills, and instilling positive values.
Gym Blast is a high energy, jam-packed, fun-filled, 1 ½- 2 hour, morning or afternoon motivational assembly full of games, geared for students from grades 7-12. Gym Blast promotes school spirit, team work and group effort.
Keramiko is committed to providing hope, encouragement, and support for pregnant and parenting youth in Calgary. As we are a new program, we are working on building a strong foundation so that we can dream big for the future. Our goal is to provide mentorship, to help bridge some gaps in programming already offered in Calgary, and to offer hope and guidance in the lives of young moms. Keramiko is here to help build community amongst teen moms so that life and learning can be done together versus alone.
Our StreetLight program aims to reach youth who are living on the streets or who are involved in human trafficking through mobile drop-in centres in Bowness and in the downtown core, as well as through two 24/7 crisis lines. The program provides a safe environment for these vulnerable youth and facilitates mentorship relationships to help them make positive life changes.
Our Youth Guidance program provides at-risk and minority youth with mentorship and relational support through facilitating sports events and through a partnership with an open custody home in Bowness. This program helps youth to develop positive values, relational skills, and leadership capabilities.
Worth Auto is an employment-training program in the form of an automotive repair shop for disadvantaged and troubled youth. Many of these youth lack self-worth and have rarely known accomplishment, so Worth Unlimited teaches them practical and valuable skills while inspiring their sense of identity.
HERE'S WHAT WE DO AROUND CALGARY:
In addition, Youth Unlimited operates two satellite programs: a community youth drop-in centre in Carstairs and an outreach program focused on mentoring youth in Bow Valley. Both satellite programs work in their community schools and through after school activities to intentionally build healthy and supportive relationships with youth.
Youth Unlimited operates a satellite program that provides mentorship for youth in Bow Valley through individually tailored one-on-one mentorship. This program supports First Nations students as well as youth from low to average income families, providing them with the developmental opportunities and adult encouragement that they need to develop their potential and recognize their unique value.
