Opportunities for Youth

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 Williams Lake!

To learn more and get involved, contact George Warr by email at gwarr@cccdca.org or call 250-392-4481.

Help Spread the Word
