A Program Designed by Youth (grade 4 to grade 12) to
Meet the Needs of Youth
through Youth Engagement

Become a leader through our
Cross-Age Peer Mentorship Program

The Youth Movement Project is dedicated to the promotion of skill- and health-related fitness to youth. It's our objective to develop these attributes in youth by way of physical training, cognitive exercises, and mindfulness strategies delivered in a safe environment. Youth, grades 4 to 12, will learn to respect each other and to strive to be their best by way of being challenged to deliver their best effort. Successes will be shared and celebrated by peers and leaders alike and youth will gain self-confidence as they develop a “can-do” attitude. We strongly believe that this positive attitude will translate into success at school, among friends and in the home.

In delivering our unique program in a safe, enjoyable and wholesome environment, we require that youth and parents/guardians conform to the following:
