Programs

Relevent, quality programs by and for our community.

There is a broad range of programs at Kiwassa for all who live and work in our neighbourhood: children, youth, adults, families, seniors, from all walks of life and representing our community’s diversity.   Our programs are free or as affordable as possible, and everyone is welcome.Volunteers and community partners play a huge role in making this possible. Our downloadable Program Guide will be ready and on this website in a few short weeks. Until then, please browse our website to find our program offerings, or drop in to visit!

 

Childcare Programs Kiwassa Neighbourhood House provides safe, quality child care in our  three daycares, preschool, and afterschool care program.

Children’s Programs We have many multicultural programs for children and families that bring our community together.

Youth Programs Programs for youth focus on youth empowerment, mentorship, education, and social and skill development, and fun!

Family Programs Families come in all shapes and sizes, and so do our programs that support parents and families. Come to parent workshops, support groups, and fun family activities.

Adult Programs Kiwassa is a safe and welcoming place for everyone  to connect with neighbours, find counseling, training, resources and information, enjoy a coffee, and give back to the community.
