Project Child Recovery

Project Child recovery is a proactive program that promotes healthy coping strategies for children who witness abuse and ensures children and youth who have experienced violence receive the support and services they need. YWCA Yellowknife offers age appropriate, supportive peer group sessions delivered by a social worker to address common concerns and promote choices that are non-violent. It is a free program accessible for youth ages 6 to 14 through YWCA and partner schools in Yellowknife.

Dudes Club

Dudes Club is a FREE program put on by community funders and YWCA Yellowknife. It is an extension of Project Child Recovery and takes place after-school and offsite. This program focuses on creating strong and resilient young leaders by creating a safe place for boys to explore their passions and gifts.
Dudes Club meets once a week for fun activities related to topics such as:

  • Healthy Relationships
  • Media Literacy Skills
  • Internet Safety
  • Healthy Habits
  • Bullying
  • Body Changes
  • Action-Figure and Hero Culture
  • What It Is Like To Be A Boy In Other Parts Of The World

Boys will be physically active and have a safe place to ask questions. The boys are given a light snack as we delve into that week’s topic. Activities are age-appropriate and modified according to the needs of the child.
