Limitless Youth

We cannot always build a future for our youth, but we can always build our youth for the future.

– Franklin D. Roosevelt

All of our Limitless Youth Programs are welcome to youth ages 12-18 in the community. Our goal is to provide access to youth within Fort McMurray to skill building, inclusive, leadership and recreational programs that gives them the tools and confidence to become successful adults. We are constantly striving to mold with the needs of today’s youth and the Fort McMurray community so that we can reach as much youth as possible.
