Make Your Impact At Jo(e) Youth Creative!

Supporting kids in social media and gaming!

Jo(e) Youth Creative supports the digital and online needs of kids - from accessibility to mentorship, business building, and for some, a safe space; without economic barriers attached.


We want every kid to be able to create safely, in a supported environment. We offer day camps, kids clubs, kids programs, teen programs, and a few fun things for the adults.  We're located in Lacombe, Alberta. Our programs are online, and in person. 

We offer them the support they need in order to ensure they grow, learn, and thrive while embracing the positive aspects of social media. Learn more about what we do and see how we impact local youth.

Changes to Art & Animation Club

June 27th, 2022

Our coaches have found that younger kids learn quite differently than older kids!

In order for everyone to get a fair chance to learn and mess around with Art & Animation, we've decided to split up the age gap.

From 4:00 - 5:30pm will be Art & Animation ages 6-11.

From 5:30 - 8:00pm will be Art Club for ages 12+.

Thank You!

Joe Youth Creative Summer Crew

June 9th, 2022

JYC Summer Crew 6+ is our new upcoming Day Camps that will go from 8:30 - 4:30 Monday - Friday.

Switching it up from Summer 2020, you can now signup for individual days rather than full weeks, so you can choose which days fit your life!

Activities will vary depending on the weather! But you can expect us to visit the LMC (Lacombe Memorial Centre), make crafts, film and edit mini-movies, YouTube videos, TikToks, play video games, and so SO much more!

Spring Info


Hi JYC Club Kids' Adults!

We just wanted to give you an update on a few things, now that the JYC is operating on a more reliable schedule.

Early Drop Off:

After School Club starts at 4pm on weekdays. Many of our coaches are still in high school, and they don't get out of school until 3:25pm. They hustle over but can't beat your kids there. Going forward, kids who arrive early will be asked if they'd like to grab a snack, and chill in the main area. We'll have simple activities ready for them to do, but the studio won't be open until the coaches arrive. We're doing this because the coaches are finding it hard to get the kids' attention to start the club, if they've already been gaming.

New Clubs:

We'll be adding new clubs in May! These will include:

  • Pokemon Club

  • Animation and Art

  • OBS and Twitch Streaming

  • Glam Squad

These clubs will be evening or weekend clubs!

Day Camps:

We have day camps through the Easter Break, as well as all summer long. Camps can be booked one day at a time, and are $50/day or pay-what-you-can. These camps help us offset the cost of the free clubs.

Birthdays Parties:

The JYC and our coaches are available for rent for JYC Club kids birthdays!

Drop In:

If you sign up for an after-school club, you'll be guaranteed your spot. We are now open for drop-in as well. Our coaches prefer to work with a minimum of 8 kids, so they'll close drop-in once 8 kids are hanging out with them.

We LOVE your kids! Thank you for supporting the JYC!

Clubs and Masks

February 14, 2022

Thank you to all of our club kids and parents who have been patient while we weathered the last wave. We do have a few changes coming:

1. Masks: Coaches will continue to wear masks at the JYC. We're doing this for several reasons. We don't have a lot of coaches and given that they work in pairs, we can't afford for them to get sick! Also, we know some kids will want to continue to mask and we want to make it as comfortable as possible to do so. 

2. Clubs: We will be increasing the capacity of clubs from 4 to 6 in the first week of March. Kids who are already on waiting lists will have priority. We will be moving back to a full Monday through Saturday Schedule as well. If you haven't already joined our app, please do so! It makes signing up easy! 

3. Coaches: Coach Jill is no longer with the JYC. Coach A has joined us. You'll still see Coach Zac, Brynn, Ashton, Cole and Emily.

Sign Up is Now Required for Drop In and Clubs

September 16, 2021

It feels like we're constantly adapting in order to keep the JYC open during the pandemic. We're doing our best to keep our clubs in-person, in the safest way possible! We are prepared to go back online, but geeze louise do we ever not want to do that! 

To be sure we are able to meet physical distancing requirements and to protect the mental health of the JYC coaches, we're now requiring sign up for after-school drop in and clubs. It's simple to do here on our website. 

Kids who show up without sign up might be turned away if we're already at a capacity of 6. Please don't make us make your kids sad :)

Back to School: 5 Social Media Tips for Parents

September 3, 2021

Back to school often means back to a routine. More structure, but also more chaos. More stress, less sunshine. More pressure, less longboarding on brand new pavement. More time with friends, less time with parents. And those darn phones.


We're going to challenge you to look at device use, this fall.
