WHO WE ARE

about us1

The Burnaby School Age Initiative is a consortium of community groups and local businesses dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children ages 6 to 12.

We are actively working to increase opportunities for school-aged children to participate in after school activities with the support of positive role models.

LAYING A FOUNDATION FOR LIFE – THE MIDDLE YEARS OF CHILDHOOD

The middle years of childhood, the time between 6 and 12
years of age, is crucial in a young person’s development. It
is the time when the foundation is laid for adolescence and
adulthood.

Research shows that when kids are involved in after school
programs they say they have a greater sense of self-esteem
and they show a greater ability to cooperate and manage their own moods and behaviour.IMG_0244

By providing after school activities that are accessible and appealing to kids, communities help to encourage healthy habits.
