The RAFT operates six After School Programs for youth, providing recreation, social activities and educational opportunities.
In partnership with over 15 different service providers, the RAFT operates six After School Programs for youth from ages 10-16.
The program provides fun recreation and social activities during their most vulnerable time of day- after school.
After School Programs offer free and accessible recreation, leisure and educational opportunities that foster independence and positive community relationships amongst the youth.
Each After School Program offers a selection of different free activities for kids to choose from. All activities are handpicked by the kids that attend - no two sites are the same.
Some activities include: gym games, drama activities, dance classes, cooking lessons, scrap booking sessions and special outings, homework help, self esteem and empowerment workshops and leadership groups.
Programs take place in local schools or community centres making it easy for youth to access these programs and making it easy for parents to pick up their kids after work.
There are many ways that you can help The Raft programs and services for youth.
