Rooted

OUTDOORS, GROWING, BONDING

This summer program is an opportunity for youth to come together and connect with one another while exploring nature, gardening, mindfulness and more! As a group we will collaboratively grow a garden, develop coping skills to support our mental well-being, and reconnect with our natural world in sustainable ways.

This year’s Rooted program is offered in partnership with our friends at Root in Nature, a social enterprise that brings the healing powers of nature and plants to the community through nature-based programs!

2022 program supported by Ottawa Community Foundation.


Mindfulness

DISCOVER, RECHARGE, BREATHE

The power of yoga and meditation is a healthy coping method. This program encourages you to discover yourself, and allows you to recharge through mindfulness and discussion with peers. Most of all, it teaches you the key aspect of mental health maintenance which is self care – to take a while just to breathe. This program is for youth 15 and older.
