Youth Programs 


The Leaders in Training Program (L.I.T.) is back again for 2024!


Youth ages 12-17 can participate in a month-long program that will allow them to develop leadership skills while volunteering at the BGC Cochrane and Area Summer Camps.


Youth will spend the first of four weeks of the program building connections with the LIT group and participating in training before spending 3 weeks volunteering in the summer camps. The participants will be able to earn 40 volunteer hours over the 3 weeks following the training week. Youth can arrange their schedule with the program coordinator and volunteer around their other commitments and summer activities.


The session dates are:

July 2 - July 26, 2024


July 29 – August 23, 2024

If you have any questions about the program, email the LIT Program Coordinator, Michelle Hounslow, at

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

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.

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



What is WiseGuyz?

It is an evidence-informed participatory program specifically designed for teenaged guys to promote mental health, healthy relationships, and prevent adolescent dating violence. While research evidence indicates it can be considered a violence prevention program, this is not the focus of the program’s content.

Instead, WiseGuyz provides a safe space for participants to discuss and explore the impacts of gender stereotypes and build essential relationship skills (friends, family, romantic), and other social emotional and life skills through fun, impactful activities
