Youth

Philosophy and Mission

Our membership has a strong commitment to the inclusion of children and youth in the co-op. To ensure that quality programs are delivered to the highest possible standard, we employ a part-time child and youth co-ordinator and councillors to run these programs. Respecting our childrens’ individuality requires us to develop programs that cover a wide range of activities, including: arts & crafts, drama & music appreciation, literature, sports & athletics, computers, science and cooking. Our programs have enhanced individual members’ lives and our co-op community in general. In recognition of our commitment to youth, CHFT has presented us with their Contribution to Youth Award.

CHFT DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS PROGRAM

The scholarship recognizes youth who are determined to succeed at the post-secondary level or in a skilled trade and who did not have the opportunity to finish high school due to family, financial or other circumstances.
