The recreation program is designed to provide sport and leisure activities for urban aboriginal youth between the ages of 6-29 yrs. Through the participation in our various programs, we aim to provide youth with a positive, supportive, and healthy environment to develop their sport and recreation skills. In doing so, urban aboriginal youth will increase self esteem, self awareness, creativeness, physical wellness and cultural awareness through the exploration of various recreation activities.

* Please note that the West Coast Family Night , Pow Wow Family Night, and Metis Family Night are all closed for the Summer.

"The Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre has helped me overcome my fears and shyness and helped me find who I am and who I want to be. I am still on a journey but it is the start of finding who I am and has helped me understand that I am not alone." - Debbie
