Calgary Flames Grade 6 YMCA Program
Through the generous support of the Calgary Flames Foundation, every Grade 6 student in Calgary receives a free YMCA Membership and active programming throughout their Grade 6 year. The goal of the program is to support youth as they transition/age out of traditional childcare models, develop new interests and prepare for junior high. The program was designed to give youth a safe place to practice independence, develop healthy habits, and establish a sense of belonging in a center of community that promotes the values of respect, honesty, caring and responsibility.
Reading…Give it a Shot!
Reading is viewed as the best way for children to develop skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. By encouraging reading, this program opens the minds of children to a world of knowledge and imagination. Reading is a gift, and Reading…Give it a Shot! helps students bring this gift to life.
Hockey Education Reaching Out Society (HEROS) is a volunteer- driven organization committed to empowering children through ice hockey. The premise of HEROS is to use the game of hockey as a catalyst to attract youth to a program offering support for education, self-esteem building and life-skills training.
The Flames Foundation supports HEROS through a multi-year partnership that resulted in a new HEROS program in the Calgary neighborhood of Bowness. The partnership brings free hockey programming that teaches life skills to over 35 children annually. The three-year partnership fully funds the program in Bowness.
