The STEPS Youth Program supports young people between grades 8 – 12 dealing with issues such as depression and anxiety by building wellness through social and recreational activities. Offered from September to June, the STEPS program meets weekly.
Through fun and challenging recreational activities STEPS encourages youth to interact in a nurturing and non-judgemental environment while promoting healthy living habits. Activities like hiking, yoga and laser tag build self-confidence and strengthen both social and personal fitness goals. Activities and locations vary, bringing new STEPS adventures weekly.
The program touches on all aspects of wellness aiming to equip participants with understanding, skills and strategies for living and maintaining a mentally healthy lifestyle.
An open group chat between the STEPS coordinator and participants keeps youth connected and supported throughout the week. One-on-one meet-ups are also offered as needed.
We are able to offer STEPS for free to youth through the generous support of donors like you. To help us provide the STEPS program to more North Shore youth, please donate.
