Building Strong Connections: BC Youth Week 2024

Skate Jam is open to all levels of skateboarding. It will be held on Saturday, May 4, from 1-4 pm, and is available for ages 10-18 to participate. If you’d like to join, go to our website to register.

Another exciting event is a performance produced by Some Assembly Theatre called I Know Your Secret, a partnership between the Vancouver Park Board and the Roundhouse Youth Theatre Action Group Project. It’s a psychological thriller exploring social influence and social media’s dangers. I Know Your Secret is a unique collaboration between theatre professionals and a team of creative youth. It revolves around seven characters who arrive at Andy’s home after only knowing him online. Created and directed by artist-in-residence Valerie Methot with a creative team of diverse youth and artists, I Know Your Secret is a product of our time with the deeply entrenched integration of social media. This free event will take place on May 3 and 4, and you can purchase through Eventbrite.
