Hot Meal Program

We have a hot meal program in place on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights from 5-6 pm. Staff prepare a free dinner for the youth, which might be grilled cheese, chicken caesar salad, baked spaghetti, taco in a bag, hashbrown casserole, etc. We also have fresh fruit available every night, courtesy of Sobey’s Lloydminster.

Teen Talks

Teen Talks are an educational program where members of the community come in to do a presentation to the youth on their area of expertise. Presentation topics vary and include healthy relationships, online safety, body image, drug awareness, community involvement, leadership, resume building and bullying. Teen Talks run the first and third Wednesday of each month.

Community Volunteering

It is important for us to give back to the community and we try to give youth as many valuable opportunities as possible! Once a month, we take youth to volunteer at ‘For The Interval’ Store and the Lloydminster & District SPCA. Volunteering helps youth with skill development and provides a great opportunity to learn to work as part of a team.

Annual Graffiti Clean-Up

One of our favourite volunteer projects takes place every summer. For the last five years, we have been joining forces with the City of Lloydminster, Home Depot, and a few other local businesses for a graffiti clean-up. We cover up affected areas around our city with murals and artwork. We love the creativity this project provides! In 2020, the City of Lloydminster handed out certificates to all youth who participated for the positive impact this project has on the community!

We always look forward to the summer so we can get outside and explore many different places! Stay tuned for information about our Summer 2021 programming! Check out the pictures below for some of our 2020 adventures!

Luvin' My Lungs

Luvin’ My Lungs is an ongoing project with the intention of helping youth and young adults who may be addicted to smoking or vaping. This project is not meant to chastise users but to provide them with relevant information that can lead to healthier lifestyle choices; even if that means simply reducing their use. Last year we worked with Narra Studios to create a video and this past year, youth created their own videos! This project allows youth to get creative and learn new technology skills.

Vape Buy Back

We continue to partner with the Lloydminster and Area Drug Strategy (LADS) on the Vape Buy Back Program. The intention is to get old vapes out of the market. Younger children often get their vape second hand from older youth. Through this program, a $25 gift-card is offered to youth who turn in their vapes. This has been a successful program and we are grateful for the continued partnership with LADS!
