What is the RDN YOUth Program all about?

  • Hearing and respecting youth voice.
  • Supporting and encouraging youth participation in recreation.
  • Responding to the changing interests of youth and community.
  • Encouraging ongoing community conversation focusing on youth recreation.
  • Reducing barriers to participation: cost, transportation and accessibility.
  • Respecting a wide variety of youth interests.
  • Fostering experiences for physical and social wellbeing.
  • Helping youth develop adaptive and positive behaviours that will enable them to meet the demands and challenges of everyday life.
  • Promoting leadership development across the youth network.
  • Working together increases opportunities for youth recreation.
  • Striving for excellence in youth recreation.
