Saint George’s YouthNet is a home away from home for kids from the Uniacke Square neighbourhood in Halifax’s North End. We are a place of friends and mentors and of fun and challenge.
Saint George’s YouthNet has been extending our offer of friendship and support to our community since 1996. Our story is tied to the long legacy of Saint George’s Round Church, which goes all the way back to 1756.
Our programs, for local youth aged 7-17, strive to encourage participants to discover their talents, gain self-confidence, and learn to dream of a bright future. After school, lunch, and teen programs throughout the year, along with wilderness trips and day camps during March Break and the summer, help to fulfill this goal.
The organization is overseen by a volunteer board of directors, chaired by the current rector of Saint George’s Round Church. This relationship to the board is just one of the many ways YouthNet is supported by the Parish, who remain our founding influence and greatest friends.
