HIGH FIVE® is Canada’s only quality standard for organizations providing recreation and sport programs to children aged 6 to 12. As an Authorized Provider, the NWTRPA is a partner in delivering HIGH FIVE® across the NWT.
What is HIGH FIVE®?
HIGH FIVE® is Canada’s only quality standard for children’s programs. Before HIGH FIVE®, no standard existed and there was a clear need for an innovative approach to help organizations enhance program quality and provide positive experiences for children, which would remain with them for a lifetime.
