Get Involved

At Foundry Port Hardy/North Island we are currently in the beginning stages of planning our centre! We will have many upcoming opportunities for young people and caregivers to become engaged in this amazing project. People will be able to promote the Foundry in our community, and all the ways we will be collaboratively supporting youth, and there will be exciting upcoming events. See below for more details!

Foundry centres are created for young people, by young people! We are currently recruiting for our Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), which will:

  • Help inform and create the decision-making process for the centre
  • Inform the physical aspects of the centre, services available, etc
  • Once the centre opens, the YAC will continue to be an integral part of the team and shape youth services in Port Hardy and the North Island
