Be Active Québec (BAQ)
Encourages youth aged 0 to 17 in our community AND their parents to adopt and maintain a health lifestyle, including physical activity and healthy eating habits. Please open the latest BAQ schedule.
Chit Chat Club
This activity responds to the growing demand by French-speakers to do volunteer work in English. English and French-speakers get together once a month to work to a variety of interesting tasks while conversing in small groups. It’s a fun, informal and a great way to make new friends. Francophones, Anglophones and Allophones (people who speak another language besides French or English) are welcome. For more information, please open the Chitchat Club poster (includes session dates).
Inside of each of us, there is creativity just waiting to be released. The Community Art program is a chance to explore your creative side through various mediums, such as drawing, painting, sculpture, and crafts. Offered in collaboration with the Jeffery Hale – Saint Brigid’s Friends’ Foundation.
Sign up for this hands-on opportunity to learn about healthy recipes, apply new food skills and foster a social and fun atmosphere for cooking under the guidance of the chef in charge of the SNACS Entrepreneurs.
