April 6 to May 25, 2023

Thursday 6:00 to 8:00pm

Open to female-identifying youth, ages 12 to 15

We believe every child should be given the opportunity to express themselves and heal in a healthy and creative way. Our 8-week programs are designed for youth who have completed their investigation process with FACS Niagara or the Niagara Regional Police or those who have experienced abuse or trauma and come at no cost to the participant.

At the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre, we believe that every child should be equipped with various outlets to help them cope with life stressors, foster resiliency and express their emotions in healthy ways. Through Get Creative, an 8-week trauma informed program, youth aged 12 to 15 will focus on different personal aspects such as their roots, talents, goals and dreams, important people in their life, their future as well as storms and how these make them resilient. Youth will explore these concepts through artist led workshops in which they will create a symbolic mixed-media tree of life.

During these 2-hour sessions, youth will gain a sense of personal power and purpose, strengthen their self-esteem as well as practice self-expression.

When & Where

Get Creative takes place on Thursday nights from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre. The program is open to female-identifying youth between the ages of 12 to 15.
