SOS Youth Programs

Restart of programs update, September 2020

We look forward to reconnecting with District 69 children, youth and families in a safe and respectful manner.  In order to do so, we are following guidelines that are given by the provincial and federal government and closely monitoring COVID-19.

We want to ensure your safety, as well as the safety of our staff and volunteers, while still providing a fun environment and a safe space to socialize.

Programs will restart the week of September 21 and end the week of November 27, 2020. Please click here for more information.


SOS is dedicated to our young community members who are making their transition into adulthood. We offer safe environments where youth can connect with responsible adults, receive healthy support, eat nutritious food, make new friends and learn about community resources.

In all our youth programs, we promote skills for developing self-esteem, responsibility and problem solving.

“It has been wonderful for them to be able to develop relationships with people who are not teachers or parents. I don’t know how SOS finds the facilitators that they find but they’re amazing. It’s really that connection they have with them, they know they can talk to them about anything. That makes me feel so much better as a working parent that they have these relationships.” ~ A parent of two youth in the School Night Out and Teen Night programs.
