Game On
Game On

​​​

"Game On" is a program in partnership with the Surrey School District's WRAP Program, The City of Surrey, Surrey RCMP, and Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver. "Game On" aims to engage elementary age (grade 6 and 7) male youth and connect them to positive male role models in their community. The goal is to help boys make good choices to live healthy active lives through fun physical activities, lively discussions, and peer support. The fun-based program occurs after school and is always supervised by a BBGV volunteer or staff. By developing a relationship based on trust, each boy can be positively supported in challenging the pressures they face in today's society.

"Game On" provides students an opportunity to connect with recreation staff and facilities closest to them, thus helping reduce barriers to accessing recreation centre programs and provide them a safe place to connect with friends outside of school. The program also helps kids develop positive relationships with their peers and opportunities to engage in social emotional learning. Each week, students focus on developing healthy life skills/habits and how to make positive life choices they can carry over into their everyday life. These lessons are taught through fun physical activities, lively discussion, and peer-based support.

"Game On" runs three different times throughout the school year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) at three different local recreation centres and takes place in 6 to 8 week spans.
