Torch Club helps kids, aged 10 to 13, develop leadership skills and self-esteem in a respectful, diversified environment, all while engaging in what's happening in their community.
Members plan their own programming based on the issues important to them. The program also offers the opportunity to give back to others and gain a sense of responsibility that comes with making their own decisions.
It is a small group experience, with the support and guidance of a caring adult mentor. This program serves as a launching pad for pre-teens before joining BGC Ottawa Leadership programs for teens.
