A new youth program, designed to provide hours of fun for Rimbey and area youth, will soon be up and running.

The Boys and Girls Club’s Terrific Tuesdays program will begin at the Rimbey Community Centre Feb. 4. The program will run from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays until the end of June.

Terrific Tuesdays is geared for ages six to 12 and will involve games, crafts and a chance to learn about the Rimbey community.

The Boys and Girls Club’s Mid-week-mash-up; a drop in program for ages 13 to 18 will be held Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Youth Action Centre and will involve planned activities and games.

Program director Annette Peck said she and Jossie Krenzler, youth program coordinator are excited to get the programs underway.

“The schools have been kind enough to invite us in to talk about the new programs and the students seemed very excited to hear of the new club and anxious to get started,” said Peck. “We are excited and anxious as well and plan to make it fun, free and determined by what Rimbey needs.

“Our ultimate goals are to support the healthy development of children of all ages by fostering a sense of belonging, personal empowerment, achievement and self-confidence.”

Volunteers are needed to help oversee programming for both programs. Anyone who has a passion for working with youth and want to get involved in their community would be a great fit, said Peck.

Financial support, gently used living room furniture, active games, healthy snacks and other items suitable for youth are still needed, she added.

Registration forms are available at the Rimbey Junior Senior High School and the elementary school.
