During the school year we host a weekly drop-in at lunchtime for any youth to come and be part of a safe community. We provide drinks, snacks and games for the youth. This is a community where we do not push the youth to be someone they are not. Our hope that this space will organically become a place for youth to make their own and enjoy some down time outside of their scheduled classes.
Haliburton Highlands Secondary School Weekly Tutoring Program
Working with staff of Haliburton Highlands Secondary School we go into English classes and help students gain skills in their reading and writing. This is a weekly tutoring program where we work closely with youth to help them reach a stronger level of knowledge and understanding.

Every Thursday from 3–5pm we meet at the Haliburton Junction Skatepark to host a drop-in where we provide drinks and optional skateboarding lessons to those who are interested. Our hope is to make this a fun and safe space for youth to come and enjoy community with fellow skaters. We want to see a gathering of positive young people being a light for others in the community. This is a time for not only skateboarders but for bikes and scooters as well. This program is aimed for grades 6–12 but does not exclude anyone.
Through partnership with the Haliburton County Youth Sailing Association, we provide sailing lessons for youth ages 8-24. The lessons are held at Red Umbrella Inn in Minden. To sign up visit the HCYSA website and find us on Page 17 of The Highlander The Highlander Newspaper
