Programs for Youth

Due to our current situation, we are not able to run many of our programs for youth. At this time, drop in programs are not possible. As of September 2020, the programs that are running are Raise the Grade, Youth HUB and Youth Council. As we re-open more of our programs, we will update this page.

Youth HUB | Monday/Wednesday/Friday OR Tuesday/Thursday

This program’s emphasis is on team building and life skills.  Academic assistance, employment support including help with resume writing and interview skills are all available here. This year, we will focus on topics and projects that will engage youth physically and intellectually. A safe space for youth where they are encouraged and empowered  to be the best versions of themselves.

Raise the Grade
St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club is pleased and proud to be part of Raise the Grade supported by RBC. The program gives youth the tools and opportunities to excel in school and go on to become successful and independent. Young people can explore their personal interests and connect with mentors, tutors and friends while enhancing their digital literacy through this after-school program.
This fall, the Raise the Grade program will be offered both in person at the Club, and virtually. The program is for students enrolled in grade 8 or high school.

To find out more about the program, to register, or to become a volunteer mentor, please contact Cindy Nguyen, 416-534-8461 ext 257 or cindy@stalbansclub.ca

Sole Sisters Virtual Workouts
Coming in October 2020.

The following programs are ones that we typically run but are not open right now. The descriptions are provided for your information. We will update you as we slowly re-open some of our favourite programs for youth.

The INC Sound Studio
The INC Sound Studio is a fully functional production and recording studio. Our program gives youth a chance to explore the exciting world of music production first hand. Whether it’s recording your first song, completing your next mixed tape, learning about audio engineering, or making your first beat, youth work alongside one of our experienced engineers to make their goals a reality. Sign up required, space is limited.

Basketball Skills & Fitness
Led by Coach Tony, skills and drills are developed for group trainings which help strengthen teamwork by increasing individual skills.  By using some components of world renowned training, Skills & Fitness will focus largely on core training to help in many facets of the game of basketball.  One-on-one training will become available as specific goals are set by youth.  By increasing their physical activity in a team setting, youth will develop positive social relationships on and off the court.
