Virtual Programs for Youth
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, in-person programs for youth have been transitioned to virtual programs for youth.
Youth in Spruce Grove are invited to participate in a variety of virtual programs to connect with us and other young people in the community. Coordinated by City staff, these programs are open to local youth ages 12–18. Follow us on Instagram @SpruceGroveFCSSYouth for information and updates on upcoming programs and activities.
What you’ll need to participate
In most cases, you will need a device and Internet connection. Any additional requirements to participate are mentioned below. Specific meeting information for each day will be shared when it becomes available.
Program schedule for August 3-7
Here are some fun activities you can try this week at home!
Calling all youth artists in the Tri-Region!
We are looking for artwork from local youth to be shared and displayed on printed cards that will be distributed for volunteer appreciation this fall. The artwork must be able to be scaled to a 4 inch by 6 inch card.
Please send us a picture of your artwork by Friday August 21, 2020. You can submit via direct messaging on Instagram @SpruceGroveFCSSYouth or by emailing email@example.com. If your art is chosen, you will be contacted directly to coordinate the next steps in sharing your beautiful artwork!
You can try creating your very own watercolour design using washable markers! For this colourful craft you will need: paper, washable markers, saran wrap, a spray bottle filled with water, scissors, tape and a permanent marker (optional).
Make sure to share your unique designs on Instagram and tag us @SpruceGroveFCSSYouth
