Cornerstone is a free prevention focused Youth Centre for grades 6-9. Providing a professionally run therapeutic program including; homework help, mentoring, sports, games, formal music instruction, creative arts, and endless healthy hot meals to kids in Calgary's Northeast and Southeast.
We believe in personal growth and resiliency traits to inspire youth to reach their potential and avoid hardships. Using the research backed "40 Developmental Assets" approach, Cornerstone actively and intentionally interacts with each Youth based on their individual needs. Some come for social skill building, some come for gang prevention, and some come simply to explore personality traits.
"We believe in Youth" is our motto, and we stand by it with no restrictions.
