October 20 to December 22
Thursday 6:00 to 8:00pm
Ages 11 to 15, open to female-identifying youth
At the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre, we believe that every child should be set up with various strategies and outlets to help them cope with life stressors, foster resiliency and express their emotions in healthy ways. Through Get Creative, a 10-week trauma informed program, youth aged 11 to 15 will learn to express themselves through multiple art modalities including:
- Drama & Songwriting
- Painting and Expression
- Pottery and Sculpting
- Stained Glass Artwork
- Vision Board Making
- & more!
Through our 2-hour sessions, youth will gain a sense of personal power and purpose, better self-esteem and well as enhanced resiliency skills by expressing themselves through various artist-supported workshops. 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 any female-identifying youth between the ages of 11 to 15 that have been through investigations with FACS or have experience of abuse of trauma.

“What the creative group has done for me was provide me with a night every week to look forward to. I met a new (good) friend, and heard the voices of many other people that have experienced similar things as me. I’ve discovered how to cope with my feelings through creative outlets that have helped me as well.” – Hailey Hicks, 2017
“This group gave these individuals the ability to use their voices, gain a sense of power over their choices and to recognize that their voices are a powerful tool. One of the biggest changes I saw was their self-esteem and self-confidence were boosted tremendously from participating in this creative group, as well as their increase in peer interaction.” Janice, FCC Family Therapist
