Here’s an overview of our programming at CNYC.
Supported by the Greater Catholic School Board, we offer a formalized community credit high school education program that aims to transition youth back into the education system. Our programming is taught by an accredited teacher and supported by an educational assistant. CNYC teaches the provincially-approved curriculum, offering core subjects such as English, Math, Native Studies, and Art.
CNYC’s full-service carpentry shop gives our youth the chance to explore a trade. Our targeted skills and safety training builds confidence, competence, and a sense of responsibility.
This program is conducted by a well-respected Elder, and includes a popular traditional drumming group.
Youth are taught how to restore broken bicycles and learn basic mechanic skills. Hundreds of bikes are restored every year and are offered to other youth, free of charge.
This program provides two healthy meals a day and engages youth in the full process of grocery shopping, meal planning, hygienic food preparation, and clean up.
Our drop-in programs give youth an opportunity to learn creativity, community engagement, self-esteem, and sobriety as a path to healing, health, fulfillment, and well-being. All of our programs offer basic life and job skills.
Boys & Girls Club of Saskatoon provides after school programming at CNYC, supported by Rogers Youth Fund. Rogers Raising the Grade is an educational program wherein mentors help youth discover their interests, shape career goals and plan for their future.
WOTS is an online platform for youth to share their experiences and express their opinions on issues that affect them while simultaneously giving them an opportunity to develop new skills, connect with culture, and pursue their own methods of creative expression.
