Youth Action Network
Funded by Columbia Basin Trust:
CDCSS seeks to offer service to youth between 12 -29 in our community by providing the financial support that often prevents health, happy, and willing youth the opportunity for community engagement in the West Kootenay region.
Youth have the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities, recreational opportunities, arts, and other community led events. These youth will be provided the financial means, and travel when available to participate.
Youth and staff will also educates the community, parents, youth and others on the benefits to community engagement, and the positive effect it will have on self-esteem, confidence, relationships, and leadership.
This program is directed by a Youth Council, which meet weekly to discuss ideas, concerns affecting youth, and participating in workshops such as public speaking, art, and culture.
