A few things we’re great at

After School Program

Monday to Friday 2-7PM. We run a registered After School Program; with a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, healthy snacks, and nightly meals. This program is open to all youth 11-18.

Food Programs

We are always cooking up something yummy up for nightly dinners. We eat together Monday to Friday @ 5pm. The Table Food Kiosk has arrived @ YAK – it can be found inside our East Entrance Doorway. 

Employment Readiness Workshops

YAK ran Skills Link Ontario from 2002-2017; and has been offering regular employment workshops since, we have an array of lesson plans and workplace readiness modules at our centre and are always happy to run workshops.

The Arts: Music and Theatre

We currently have an artist in residence representing the film industry. Allison Graham brings a breadth of knowledge and experience in the arts and is always willing to share.
