The Brockville Police and Stingers Afterschool Program is a safe and inclusive space where youth can be positively engaged in meaningful relationships with adult and peer mentors alike. Youth can engage in a variety of fitness, recreation, education and creative activities with a focus on healthy food and mental wellness. The program boasts many fun activities including, Laser Tag, Basketball, Volleyball, Batting Cages, Free Pizza,
Board Games, Homework Help, Workshops and much more!
As we enter our 3 rd year of operation, we are overwhelmed with gratitude to our many generous community partners. We have a wonderful team of adult volunteers as well as an energetic team of youth volunteers who work hard to make this Tuesday program possible. We are always looking for more help and particularity adult volunteers to join our team. Last year, Girls Inc. came and offered workshops and programs to the youth who came out. If you are a community agency or an adult who is passionate about youth advocacy, we would love to have you join the team and connect with the over 150 youth who come through our doors.
Please drop by Tuesday October 16th , 3pm-5:30pm and see for yourself what we’re all about!
