Children (6-12 years)

The WOCRC is committed to helping children and their parents lead healthy, meaningful lives and to have access to key resources from across our community.

Whether your child needs help building confidence, dealing with bullying, support related to disputes in the home, or just needs someone to talk to, our trained counselling staff and volunteers can help. Call to make an appointment with our Counselling Services Team.

From children’s groups and workshops to counselling, and presentations, we offer exciting opportunities for children and their parents to connect with their peers, access support, learn new skills, build self-esteem, make friends, have fun and contribute positively to life in their community. Contact the Children's Community Developer for current activities.

Our Child and Youth staff team will work with other organizations, community groups and individual community members, including parents and youth, to provide services and education on issues that affect today’s young people. 

Homework support is available to students in grades 3-8 through our Homework Clubs located at Bridlewood Community Elementary School and Katimavik Elementary School. Although the clubs are located in these schools, they are open to all students and there is no charge for these services. 

Parents must first complete the Registration Forms below before a student may attend the club. Both schools have the forms available through their office and on their websites. Forms may also be picked up and or completed during regular club hours (on the right). 

Fun Friends (4-7 years old) and Friends for Life (8-11 years old) anxiety prevention programs

Are you concerned that your child is anxious, more than what you would consider being average? The FRIENDS program can help. Over the course of 8-10 weeks your child will engage in meaningful and interactive sessions with their peers to address their anxiety and help to reduce the affects it is having on their enjoyment of everyday experiences. Each session will be one and half hours long, which includes a light snack.

The Richmond Youth Centre is unique program for youth in the community of Richmond, where youth can meet new people and try new activities. Youth and their families can get connected to community resources and services.
