The goal of the Youth Enrichment Project is to bring a full complement of programs and services for at-risk youth. By collaborating with community partners, stakeholders, and businesses, the project will initiate a youth centre that provides a space for youth to spend time in and feel supported, as well as access mentoring and other resources. YEP staff will offer experiences and activities that promote inclusion, build skills, and social connection, with a focus on mental health awareness and reducing stigma.
The Animator’s with the support of the Town, local churches, volunteers, and business have built a safe place for at risky youth of the area. The motto for the centre is “there is a place for everyone,” and everyone in town and outlying areas have noticed positive change since this facility has opened.
