Blackfalds council proclaims May 1st-7th as National Youth Week

National Youth Week is dedicated to the celebration of youth

Council proclaimed May 1 – 7, 2019 as National Youth Week in Blackfalds at the April 23 Regular Council Meeting. The week will be celebrated by activities each day throughout the Town.

“As a young community, we are proud to recognize the youth of Blackfalds and provide them a full slate of activities to celebrate the vibrancy they bring to our town,” stated Mayor Richard Poole.

National Youth Week is dedicated to the celebration of youth and their active participation in their community. Whether it is recreation, drama, sport, dance, civic engagement, art, volunteerism or leadership, everyday young people are involved in meaningful activities during their discretionary time.

National Youth Week is to honour their involvement.

Youth, those young people in their teenage years, are an important asset to Canadian communities. One way in which young people learn to successfully bridge the development gap between childhood and adulthood is through the activities in which they participate in their time out of school or work.

Free activities being hosted in Blackfalds during National Youth Week include:

Wednesday, May 1: Something Cool After School

Thursday, May 2: Youth Recognition Night

Friday, May 3: After the Grind Games Night, Build Your Own Terrarium

Saturday, May 4: Yoga Class, Youth & Teen Admission at Abbey Centre, Pound Class

Sunday, May 5: Bullskit Youth Prov Workshop

Monday, May 6: BYC Youth Week Celebration

Tuesday, May 7: BYC Youth Week Celebration
