Family Futures Resource Network offers child and youth programs developed to increase social skills for children and youth ages 6-18 such as problem-solving; friendship building; anger management; communication; bullying support; goal setting and girl empowerment. These evidence-informed programs incorporate the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Asset Building research and have been well received and sought after.
Any programs with a September-December start date are part of the fall session. Please note registration for these programs will not open until August 17 at 9 a.m.
If you need any additional resources, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 780-413-4521. We have created some online programs, services and support options. These are on each program page, the At-Home Family Fun page, and our YouTube channel.
Please note, some of our Early Childhood Development programs go up to 6-years-old. Check here for additional programs that may be applicable to your family.
6–10 years | Express your ideas and show your originality at this exciting art program! We will be exploring various mediums of art including, paint, pastels, and papier-mâché. On the final evening of the program, we will have our very own FFRN Art Exhibit for all the children to show off their works of art which, they can then take home in their art portfolios. Children will be challenged to think outside the box and use their creativity with art projects that will boost their confidence and let loose their imaginations!
Check out Art Works for a similar program for youth ages 11 to 14-years-old.
10 years and up | Ideally, children should be supervised at all times by a responsible adult. However, today’s family situations often cannot accommodate this idea. The Home Alone Program is designed to provide children with the necessary skills and knowledge to be safe and responsible when home alone for short periods of time. It will help them understand how to prevent problems, handle real-life situations, and keep them safe and constructively occupied. This program has been developed by the Canada Safety Council and is recommended for children who are at least 10 years of age and up. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
Parental consent forms required | $25.00 fee

7–10 years | Participants will train as knights who will learn how to protect their immediate realm from damage and danger. This program will teach kids the elements of personal responsibility in the context of their neighbourhood. Participants will learn how to keep their community safe, environmentally friendly, beautiful, and positive. Join our team as we explore the concepts of neighbourhood citizenship through the eyes of heroes of old: Knights.
6–12 years | We’ve adapted select workshop topics into a format that encourages participants to get involved in a facilitated discussion through prompts and questions. English Language Learners can use this format to practice speaking on topics like the outdoors, national parks, nature & wildlife.
