13–16 years | In this program, participants will learn about the world of improvisation and performance. Through a variety of games, challenges, and skits, participants will learn to think on their feet and react quickly to their surroundings, problem solve, and work together as a group to reach a common goal. Whether you have improv experience or want to try it for the first time, everyone is welcome!
10-14 years | Welcome to Youth Cooking Club Level 2! This exciting next step to the Youth Cooking Club Level 1 is designed for youth who have completed the first level at Family Futures Resource Network. Growing on the skills they learned in the original program, the youth will focus on developing safe kitchen practices, learn how to make balanced meals and will even get the chance to create their very own unique recipes. Each week the youth will work in teams to follow a recipe and will get the chance to share their yummy creations with all the participants in the program. All young chefs in this program will also receive a certificate of completion at the end of this food-tastic program. Please speak with a facilitator when you register your child if you feel the age requirement doesn’t match their experience level.
13-15 years | This program challenges youth to draw from their personal experiences and reflect upon what they learn to apply it to their everyday lives.

These activities, along with self reflection and mindfulness activities, help increase their confidence and interpersonal skills.
