Meet, Move & Empower

With support from Jumpstart's Sport Relief Fund, we are offering a new youth program this fall.

This program combines the best of fun, friendship, and physical activity. Each week Black, Brown, Asian, Indigenous, and Multi-Racial Girls will enjoy a variety of COVID-19 friendly mentorship and physical activities that empower them to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Activities will include group discussions, dance, yoga, soccer, traditional Indigenous games, and more. Instruction is adapted to individual needs. Participants may be divided into junior and senior groups upon arrival

All activity themes are subject to change.

A 1 to 6 participant to staff ratio is provided. Inclusion one-to-one support is available at no extra cost for separate registration. External support workers and assistive equipment are welcome.

COVID-19 protocols (e.g., masks and social distancing) apply for this in-person program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does junior and seniors groups mean? Will my participant be split up from their friend?

Participants may be divided into two different groups based on age and ability to do certain activities.

If participants are coming with friends, instructors will make sure to keep them together.
