Youth Programs

Launch Pad is a model of social innovation and we are all about engagement. Seriously, we are open to everyone ages 12 to 18, we mean you, and your friends. We are in Hanover, but doors are open to any one in Grey Bruce and their friends.

What you learn here can give you skills to get a job and make money, feel great and have even more fun, save for school or the things you need, for real, it's what we do.
