Provide a safe space for Calgary teens

Sadly, many teenagers in Calgary don’t have a safe or supportive place to go after school. Your gift of $50 or more supports the development of dedicated spaces and programs for teenagers in our community. Having a warm, welcoming place to support their learning and creativity is vital as young people move into adulthood.

Your gift could support:

  • The Teen Tech Lab, a space that provides connected, social learning and promotes teens’ innate creativity guided by positive adult role models
  • Participation in a Community Helpers session, a program that teaches teens how to assist their peers in coping with stress, helps them to identify at-risk youth, and provides them with local resources to support mental health
  • Specialized programs to help teens learn about budgeting and keeping spending and savings in balance
