Although all Canadians have a right to comprehensive sexuality education, children and youth with disabilities do not always receive it. Children and youth with disabilities experience the physical, social and emotional changes that are part of growing into a healthy adult in similar ways to their typically developing or able-bodied siblings and peers.
The Bonnyville Friendship Centre offers a variety of programming specifically for children and youth. Our aim is to bridge the gap between aboriginal and non-aboriginal youth, providing a safe environment where everyone can learn together, creating a world in which education leads to acceptance. Everyone in our community is welcome to become a part of our family.
