Youth Services & Support

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Town of Blackfalds facilities, including the Abbey Centre, are closed until May 15, 2020.
All BYC activities are therefore postponed until further notice.

Blackfalds Youth Week 2020

Due to the Province's mandate to physical distance and avoid large gatherings, we will not be hosting Blackfalds Youth Week activities and events in person. However, throughout the week we will continue to encourage active youth participation within the community, share relevant youth resources, as well as information regarding how to stay connected during this time. We also look forward to highlighting the accomplishments of the young people in our community who were nominated for youth volunteer awards.

Blackfalds Youth Crew offers free drop-in after-school programs for youth grades 4 - 6 and evening programs for youth grades 7 - 12. These programs promote positive peer relationships, provide mentoring and leadership opportunities, and enhance social supports and relationship building within the community. Staff and volunteers strive to provide a safe place where youth can feel empowered and valued. Activities provide opportunities to build upon social skills, positive values and self-esteem.

We meet weekly on the following days and times:

Youth grades 4 - 6 on Mondays from 3:45 - 5:45 pm

Youth grades 7 - 12 on Tuesdays from 5:00 - 7:00 pm

Activities take place upstairs at the Multiplex, 5302 Broadway Ave.
