YMCA Youth Transitions Program (YTP) provides support to youth aged 13 to 19. YMCA Youth Advisors meet with youth to help them overcome barriers and support them in reaching their fullest potential.
Anger Management is a YTP one-to-one workshop that examines various strategies and techniques for recognizing and managing anger. Throughout the eight weeks, participants go through the stages of the anger cycle and what this looks like in their personal lives, thereby enabling them to recognize signs of anger and manage it.
This workshop is for youth aged 13 to 19, who would like to learn new skills in a supportive environment. Like all YTP programs and workshops, Anger management uses a multi-media approach to facilitation, using varied and interactive methods to ensure every learner achieves a full grasp of the material presented.
In addition to receiving eight weeks of support and instruction, participants have access to a range of YTP program and services including:
Youth Advisors are available to provide free supportive counselling, community referrals, advocacy services, life-skills workshops and job-search assistance.
Rec Nights introduce youth to recreational activities they may not normally get to experience. This free program meets once per week during after-school hours and provides an entertaining and safe place where youth are able to participate in new activities and make friends.
YTP offers a wide variety of additional workshops that can help meet the needs of our participants.
