Jump-In Summer Program
What We Do
The Jump-In summer program offers youth the opportunity to express their creativity through various art forms, exploring outdoors, engaging in life-skills workshops, and receiving First Aid and Barista training. Participants in the program are youth between 15 and 18 who are looking to have some fun during the summer months. All referrals for the program are through the Ministry of Children and Family Development Special Needs team.
- A summer program which offers youth the opportunity to express their creativity through various forms of art by exploring outdoors, and engaging in life-skills workshops and training;
- Participants in the program are special needs youth between the ages of 15 and 18 years;
- Referrals for the program are through the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
- Longer staff hours to ensure that youth are able to obtain more certificates and that tasks can be done during scheduled hours (i.e. grocery shopping;)
- Change application deadlines – the purpose of this being to help the program coordinator be timely in speaking to families and social workers about youths’ developmental stages and needs. The program coordinator can then put youth into specific camps based on this information and plan the weeks based on that information (some groups will have higher needs than others.)
