Growing up for children these days isn’t easy.  We see teens in society who struggle.  As children mature and grow, in this fast-paced world,
they can become strangers to themselves.  The bewildered young person begins to ask “Who am I?”.  Without strong identities they will be, or do, whatever they think others want.


Parents often wonder, “What can I do?”  Many work long hours or shift work, are single parents or have stepped in as primary caregivers.

Seeing this, and having lived it ourselves, we at St. Andrew began to think “What can we do to help?”


As a result, we have developed an after-school program which we believe can change the trajectory of young people’s lives. 


“The Village Kids Club” is a secure environment where children feel safe, it provides an opportunity for those in grades 2 to 8, to learn great skills and be mentored by mature adults.


You too, can make a difference in a young person’s life.
