Cool Connections

Foothills School Division, Alberta Health Services, and Big Brothers Big Sisters are collaborating through the Mental Health Capacity Building (MHCB) grant to support the prevention and promotion of mental health and wellness for our children, youth, families and communities.

We are kicking off the summer with Cool Connections. Our goal is to create a safe space for youth to casually drop-in, hang out, connect with others, play games, or partake in events based on their expressed interests-the choice is totally theirs! We will be at Cameron Crossing School all summer, so we hope our youth can join us!

The team also hopes to partner with ongoing events in the community to not only promote this summer programming, but to spread the word in supporting everyone's mental health and wellness. Therefore, we welcome any community partnership that wishes to join our initiative!

To view the Cool Connections summer schedule, please visit: Cool Connections 2019 Schedule or www.youthbranch.com. Make sure to also follow us @coolconnectionssummer2019 on Instagram to see what we are getting up to!

For any questions - please contact Paulina Gornicki, Program Manager of the FSD MHCB at gornickip@fsd38.ab.ca or (403) 922-6328.

We appreciate your support and excitement for this meaningful initiative!
