Future Royals Youth Enrichment Program
Future Royals is a Canadian-based social enterprise delivering creative and educational programming for children between ages 4-18 across Canada. STEAM Education (science, technology, engineering, art and math).  Our programs are focused on building essential life skills and creative thinking. Our programs are diverse in nature with an international approach to content. We provide in-school programming, after-school sessions and school break camps throughout the year.  Each child will learn to develop their own voice and will leave being more aware of who they are and the choices that life will present to them as they grow. While kids will always be kids, we want to make sure they also learn some great skills along the way that will help them have a smooth transition from childhood to adulthood later on with great success.
