Youth Outreach

Are you looking for someone to help you navigate some of the challenges that come with transitioning to adulthood?

Are you struggling with anything at home,school or in your relationships and need advice or support on what to do next?

Our Youth Outreach Worker, Kevin, is committed to helping youth succeed and move forward with anything that life throws their way. 

After taking some time off of work and touring the globe for a year, Kevin has returned to his home town with a renewed passion for connecting with and supporting youth in his community.  In his developing position as an Outreach Worker for the Boys and Girls Club of Cochra ne and Area, Ke vin looks forward to providing the mentorship and support that is so crucial for a young person finding their way in life.  Read Kevin's full bio.

The goal of our Youth  Outreach  Program is to connect with youth (aged 12-22) 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. 

Ma ny youth in this community do not have an adult in their life that can be considered a positive friend or mentor. Without this meaningful adult connection, many youth don’t know who to turn to for help when life gets overwhelming. Community referrals are essenti al to how we 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.

The types of services that the Youth Outreach Program offer but are not limited to;

In-school support/tutoring

Job readiness support including resume coaching and interview prep

Connecting to local supports and services

Accessing social outlets and recreation opportunities

Referrals to this program can be made by completing the referral form or by calling or emailing Kevin's confidential and direct line at 403-618-3149, youtreach@bgccochrane.ca 

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.
