Growing Young Movers Urban Indigenous Youth After-School Wellness Program

“Any time people from a community can come together to play, we feel quality of life is impacted. Our GYM programming is a consistent place for youth to connect,” expressed Brian. “Our intergenerational approach impacts not only the younger youth but all ages that attend. Older youth and young adults can learn a great deal from the younger generations of what it means to belong and be part of something inclusive like GYM. GYM programs go beyond just getting youth physically active. Together alongside the youth, we work to enhance the holistic wellbeing of all participants.”
