Community Outreach

The Boys and Girls Club of Cochrane and Area is involved in numerous community outreach programs:

Introducing our new Youth Outreach Worker position!

The goal of our Youth Outreach Program is to connect with youth (aged 12-18) that are facing any of the vast arrays of challenges that teens and young adults deal with today, but don’t necessarily have a healthy or extended support system to help navigate these challenges. Many youth in this community do not have an adult in their life that can be considered a positive friend or mentor. Without a meaningful adult connection, many youth don’t know who to turn to for help when life gets overwhelming. With your help, I plan to provide this mentorship and create a system of support around any youth that doesn’t currently have access to someone who can encourage, support, and motivate them outside of the classroom.

A Bio on Kevin, our Youth Outreach Worker is coming soon!

We offer the following programs to Rockyview schools in Cochrane and surrounding area schools:

  • Healthy Relationships
  • Chess Club
  • Girls Group
  • Boys Group
  • Lunch Intramural Program 
  • Pink Shirt Day and anti-bullying campaigns

Bragg Creek Outreach

We are offering both Junior Chef and our new program Junior Baker at the Bragg Creek Community Centre on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Click here to learn more about both of these programs

  • It takes four staff members working both in and out of school to deliver the Healthy Relationships, Chess Club, Girls Group and Boys Group programs in addition to youth programs at the BGCCA itself.  The Boys and Girls Club of Cochrane services Bearspaw, Bragg Creek, Cochrane, Springbank and Westbrook Schools, working closely with local CDA's to enrich and empower children and youth. 

Contact the BGCCA for information on community outreach.

As the community grows so does the demand for more Boys and Girls Club Resources.  Check out our Be Involved page to see how you can make a difference.
