Serving the Shuswap- North Okanagan region of British Columbia
Hello and thank you for visiting
The purpose of the society is to operate a youth centre which offers structured programs that are directed towards resolving problems that are faced by youth and to provide, administer and maintain a multi-use community facility for the benefit and use of the community.
- Social Programs for Youth.
- We provide resources and supports to youth and families funded through the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
- We also offer youth programs and programs we have developed including the “Outer Limits Youth Programs” and our summer program, “Party in the Park”
- We host and support Jumpstart and Kidsport to connect more kids with activities through subsidizing registrations and some activity costs where this is a barrier to becoming involved in activities.
- Building skills toward employability
- We currently have a youth skills link program(Talon) which provides a combination of life skills and work experience for young people aged 15 to 30.
- Job Creation Projects
- we are currently host a second project to restore a fleet of Wooden Dragon Boats Check it out at our facebook page
We are here to connect resources and supports for young people in our community. All young people struggle as they grow, some more than others. Some face some very difficult realities. Our work focuses both on supporting young people to be able to engage in successful ways within the community and to work with the community to better support and engage with young people.
