POWER UP Youth Program

POWER UP is a youth outreach program designed to engage youth (grades 6 – 12) by helping them grow and become a part of their community. This YMCA of Fredericton initiative brings youth together to participate in activities while gaining life skills that will empower them to reach their full potential. POWER UP is a unique program that provides youth the chance to choose the activities that they will participate in as a group. This will offer freedom of choice and provide youth the opportunity to build leadership skills.
