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.
