Terms and Conditions

Language:

Your child has been invited to attend a program offered by Yo Bro | Yo Girl Youth Initiative (YBYG) at the Newton Recreational Center in Surrey, BC. The program tentatively runs on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. 

YBYG is an extra-curricular program for youth in partnership with the Surrey School District and is offered to youth at no cost. Participation in a YBYG program is an exciting opportunity to connect with peers, participate in some physical activity and confidence-building activities, and develop leadership skills.

YBYG provides a pro-social, recreational-based program to enable youth to make safe and healthy choices, develop personal competencies, and strengthen their commitment to their education and community. Additionally, the program offers community connectedness, mentorship, and role modeling opportunities. More information about YBYG can be found online at http://ybyg.ca.

YBYG Staff will supervise and run the program. Snacks will be provided, and parents should indicate food restrictions and/or allergies on the consent form. Registration must be completed before your child can participate in the program.

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Sahota (YBYG Program Manager) at 778.549.7811

Please note:  Space is limited and registration will be accepted on a first come first serve opportunity and a waitlist will be maintained.
