About Our Youth Development Courses

At the Y, we understand how youth learn. Our youth development courses are taught by trained instructors who are experts at relating to youth. We make course content relevant by using real-life scenarios, a collaborative flexible teaching style and a curriculum that makes sense. We know it’s important to balance instructional time with hands-on, practical activities to reinforce concepts being taught as well as giving youth the opportunity to talk about and practice their skills in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental setting.

It is for these reasons that our YMCA courses involve multiple classes with extra hours of content where concepts can be reviewed and reinforced, giving youth the best chance to use their newfound skills appropriately and confidently in their future.

Please contact the Child & Youth department (250-419-9622 ext. 222) with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our courses.
