What We Do

Created to Create After School Programs

Online Registration!

Created to Create is a program of Northumberland Youth Unlimited (YFC). At C2C we believe that the One who created us, designed us in His own image and therefore we are creative beings. C2C exists for the purpose of encouraging the development of the Creative Arts in young people and empowering them to use the Arts to glorify, worship and honour God. Creative Arts is a key source of self-esteem and self-worth development.

C2C offers youth an experience in drama, music, dance and art. It is affordable after-school groups and summer day camps for youth between the ages of 8 to 17 years of age. Currently we are running the following after-school programs: Musical Theatre on Tuesdays (Port Hope) and Youth Concert Band on Thursdays (Cobourg).
