Virtual Youth and Adult programs provide a range of opportunities for participants (13-17 yrs & 18+) to connect online. Programs include Fitness, Movie Club, and Social Meet Ups. All sessions are facilitated by CAN staff.

Using the free Zoom app (an online meeting platform), coaches will be able to connect with participants in real-time, teaching lessons in a fun, new and digital environment.

Program Structure

  • Each session ranges from 1-2 hours (depending on activity), once per week, for six weeks
  • Each session has up to 15 participants taking part virtually

Virtual Fitness

  • Workout sessions led by a certified personal trainer
  • Focus on aerobic endurance, strength, and flexibility featuring activities that can easily be done from home
  • No previous fitness experience required
  • See Equipment Checklist

Movie Club

  • Watch a movie on Netflix together, discuss the movie with peers, and play fun games online
  • Participants access the party through their own Netflix account and a link provided by CAN (not through Zoom)
  • A CAN staff supports the chat during the film

Virtual Meetups

  • Meet up online, build social relationships, and play a variety of fun games
  • A CAN staff mediates the group, introducing fun activities and guest facilitators each week
  • Available for youth (13-17 yrs) and adults (18+ yrs)

Supports Provided

  • Participants are encouraged to participate independently – parents/guardians are welcome to support when needed
