POWER UP is a YMCA of Fredericton initiative for high-school aged youth. The goal of POWER UP is to provide a safe space for youth on Friday nights and provide them opportunities to develop positive life skills.
-By bringing youth together in a safe space, participants will be encouraged to participate in healthy activities, such as physical activity, and they will have the opportunity to gain valuable life skills such as volunteering and resume building. POWER UP will provide youth the chance to choose their own activities which will offer freedom of choice. This program will be hosted at the YMCA Fredericton on 570 York Street, with potential to have outings off-site at various locations around the city (i.e. Fredericton Bouldering Co-op, Odell Park, UNB Reds sporting events etc.). To make this program accessible to all, the program will be free to all participants.

For any youth that is interested please have them and their parent(s)/guardians fill out the form and send it back to me via email. They are also welcome to drop their forms off at the YMCA Fredericton location at 570 York Street. Please note, if dropping forms off at the YMCA ensure to direct the forms to Liam Pyke.
