Red Fox’s flagship Active Play program gives Indigenous and inner-city kids the chance to be healthy, have fun, and get inspired by positive youth role models from their own communities. Red Fox Youth Leaders guide children through energetic group games, circus arts and other physical activities that cultivate self-confidence, social connections, and new skills.
Red Fox created the first Active Play program at Strathcona Community Centre in 2007 to serve the needs of Indigenous and inner-city children who were disengaged with traditional after-school programs. The program’s success has seen it grow rapidly. Red Fox Active Play now reaches over 730 children across Metro Vancouver every week.
Active Play is currently offered through regular programs in schools, community centres and parks during the school year and summer at over 15 locations in Vancouver, Surrey, and North Vancouver. The program is free for participants and open to children of all ages and abilities. Red Fox also runs Active Play sessions for families at special community events throughout the year.
Active Play not only gives kids a foundation for healthy, active lives – it is also at the core of the Red Fox Youth Leadership Program.
“Trevor learns differently from other children and you guys just seem to really get him. He listens and understands, and it truly brings joy to my heart to see him playing with you all. He normally has a problem attending group gatherings, but with Red Fox he wants to get there early! Thank you Red Fox!” – Jacques, Trevor Foster Parent
