Next 100 Years
A partnership with the Surrey RCMP, the Next 100 Years program is currently in its fifth year. This program operates primarily at the elementary schools with the Grade 6/7's through weekly presentations and activities centering on culture, identity and community. Beginning after spring break, youth mentors from the affiliated secondary school, who have completed a spring break training camp, will work with the elementary students twice a week until the end of the school year on themes including: identity, culture and diversity, anti-racism, sacrifice, anti-oppression and community.
In addition to programming during school hours, the Next 100 Years offers twice weekly, after-school sessions in the springs as well as community parent nights on topics affecting youth, the community and parents.
This program is currently offered at Senator Reid Elementary/ LA Matheson Secondary and at Beaver Creek Elementary/Tamanawis Secondary. Each elementary site has approximately 100 participants and each secondary site supports with approximately 25 mentors.
The Next 100 Years program is run in coordination with the Next 100 Years Kabaddi camp held during summer break. Please see School Break Programs for more information.
