Hello everyone! Thanks so much for your interest in this program.
First Light is a registered non-profit organization that serves the urban Indigenous and non-Indigenous community alike by providing programs and services rooted in the revitalization, strengthening and celebration of Indigenous cultures and languages in the spirit of trust, respect, and friendship.
First Light is so excited to be bringing back our youth program! Our youth program will be a safe, non-judgmental space for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth to come together and participate in both cultural and non-cultural activities. This program will focus on their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being through activities. Such as, homework hour, crafts, drumming, outdoor time, book club, and more. We will be incorporating First Lights mission into our program, focusing on trust, respect and friendship among the youth and staff.
We’re looking at running the program on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 2:30-5:30. Right now, there’s enough interest to run two different age groups, 6-9 and 10-12. We can either serve both groups once a week or pick an age group and have them twice a week. We can't do youth every day, unfortunately. We just don't have the staffing.
