Frontlines – Youth Programming

Group Name: Frontlines – Youth Programming

Description: In September 1987, Frontlines opened its doors to the children and youth in Weston, offering them a safe place to “hang out” away from the streets. Since then, we have welcomed hundreds of “Westonians”, providing programs and services in our quest to help make Weston a better and safer place. Started as a drop-in centre that focused primarily on music, Frontlines has been a haven for many children and youth from the Weston community – many of whom had lost their way.

We serve children ages 8 to 13 and youth 14 to 21, providing programming that addresses the physical, emotional and intellectual needs of participants. Our programming focuses on fitness, nutrition/cooking, and the performing arts. We work from a relationship model, meaning that programs are used to teach skills and draw children and youth into relationships with our staff and other members of our community. Our staff focus on creating impactful connections with our participants; it is through these relationships and mentoring that we see the greatest transformation in the lives of our participants.
