OSKAYAK Youth Program

A place where urban Aboriginal youth can gather, take pride in their heritage and share their cultures. Open to youth of Aboriginal ancestry aged 14-24, their families and their friends.

Aboriginal youth are welcome to come in to explore their culture, participate in activities, connect to their community and have fun. Whether it is movie nights, carving workshops, arts and crafts, cooking classes, learning about our culture and heritage or exploring the community; there is something for everyone. Regular activities, group outings, cultural exploration, and workshops are provided to engage, inspire and support Aboriginal youth to learn, dream and thrive.

Please call 604-271-7600 ext.102 or email for more information about OSKAYAK Youth Programs.


The OSKAYAK Garden Project

Richmond Youth Service Agency is pleased to announce The OSKAYAK Garden Project at Terra Nova Garden.

The OSKAYAK garden project focuses on living an active and healthy life from a traditional perspective for Aboriginal youth. Participants of the OSKAYAK Garden Project have access to fresh garden food and medicines and also receive a certificate for their participation in the program.

OSKAYAK Youth Council

This eight member youth council is the governing body of Pathways youth programming. All eight elected members meet bimonthly and work hard to contribute to the day-to-day functioning of youth programming: planning and approving scheduled activities, workshops and outings, while also planning and executing community projects and fundraising efforts for special events. Council members represent Richmond Youth Service Agency, Pathways Aboriginal Centre and the Richmond community at large at various regional/provincial Aboriginal youth conferences and forums. The council actively promotes the centre’s youth programming to friends, family, and peers with the support of all of its members.
