Late Night Fun for Our Youth!
Late Night Fun and Focus for Our Youth
The Idea: To support youth with positive, fun activities after-hours.
An active, positive person would be hired to run late-night programming (9 or 10 pm. to midnight to 1:00 a.m) for our youth on Fridays and Saturdays at the school, youth centre, local lake and recreation area, pool, arena, ball diamond and more. The goal is to engage youth, in a substance-free environment and supervised environment, with positive late-night sports, games, cook-outs, community service, etc. Fort Chipewyan, is very bright and warm in June, July and August, which can be an attraction to negative night activities. Currently, there is a teen night that runs till 10 p.m. on Fridays with an attendance of 30 - 46 teens. We know this will be a success.
Who Will it Benefit?
It will directly benefit:
1) Approx. 50 different youth aged 13 - 19
2) An active, positive person who wants to work with youth and fill an important role in our community
Indirect benefits a community of 1200 community members
