The Nelson and District Youth Centre’s doors have been open to local youth for over 16 years now. The facility houses an indoor skate park as well as offer a wide variety of programs and activities such as skateboarding lessons, yoga, girls groups, art programs, a music room, Skills Link, Youth Employment Services and so much more.
They are currently distributing an on-line survey to the community in hopes to improve their understanding of local youth, so they can better support them through existing programs and new initiatives.
“The results of the survey will be used to assess services, strengthen programs, determine gaps and set priorities for the NDYC advisory committee,” says Christine Schmidt, manager of the Nelson and District Youth Centre.
All ages are welcome to fill out the survey, however their main focus is hearing the views and opinions of local youth ages 12-18.
