Youth Campus Cultural Community Centre

This project will renovate and expand the existing youth community facility.
Work includes converting the adjacent church sanctuary into a community centre by removing pews; constructing a stage; installing new audio visual, lighting, and sound systems; improving floors, and upgrading HVAC requirements. The demolition of the existing community centre will allow for 2,500 square feet of new space to be added to the complex, facilitating a new, large kitchen, more washrooms, and multi-use meeting space. These improvements will provide a safe, supportive and healing space for vulnerable youth, 16 to 24 years old (including Indigenous youth). It will also allow for increased access to cultural healing, skill development, socialization and self-expression programming. Other youth service agencies will also be able to access the new facility and its services.
