Introducing our first-ever youth committee
This year, our agency has been working with an amazing group of youth volunteers who have formed our first-ever youth committee. The Teen Leaders group has been working hard over the past several months to complete a Community Action Project in partnership with Equitas, which involved putting together 40 care packages made especially for youth in the Langley community. The packages included a selection of self-care goodies as well as a brochure connecting youth with mental health resources in Langley.
Last week, the 40 care packages were delivered to the Langley Youth Hub, where they will be distributed to youth in the Langley community. Langley Youth Hub is a resource centre for youth which offers medical care, counselling services, and a variety of drop-in services for youth who are in need of extra support. Check out their Facebook and Instagram pages to learn more about all of the services that they offer!
Our agency is thrilled to have made an awesome connection with the Langley Youth Hub through the Community Action Project. We are also excited to be wrapping up our first year with our Teen Leaders group. A HUGE thank you to all of our Teen Leaders participants for your hard work on this project!
