Child & Youth

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.

6–12 Years

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.

As you are probably aware the Alberta government has made some changes to the COVID-19 restrictions, and you may be wondering how they impact children and youth programming?

As of right now, there are no changes that impact children and youth. FFRN is still requiring children and youth to wear masks as per the City of Edmonton bylaw. We understand that the masking requirements have changed at schools. Please recognize that we do not operate under the same guidelines as schools rather, we are a public space in the City of Edmonton which means we operate under the city bylaw.

Please be aware; however, that FFRN will be making changes as COVID-19 bylaws and restrictions ease.

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.

Home Alone

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..
