Hello, my name is Tamara and I am the False Creek Youth Leader.

Fun fact, I started out at FCCC as a volunteer!
I love working with the False Creek youth because there
is never a dull moment with the great energy and variety of people I get to meet. Feel free to stop by my office to say hi or challenge me to a game of air hockey!

 

Community Youth Development at False Creek CC

Youth services at False Creek Community Centre is a partnership between the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation and the False Creek Community Association.

The Youth Leader at False Creek Community Centre focuses on developing programs that reflects the principles of the CYD in City of Vancouver; accessible, collaborative, and inclusive. Youth are involved with volunteer opportunities, social activities and program planning in a respectful atmosphere where they are able to implement and work on their decision making skills.

Did you know that False Creek Youth Programs are the most affordable recreational programs in the Granville-Fairview Area?

FCCC offers after-school programs for youth grades 5-12 at very low and affordable rates!
