Want an amazing school year?

Are you a teenager looking for something different in your school year? Then Gateways might be for you. Youth who are 13 to 15 years old, interested in life, the outdoors, and choice in their curriculum are perfect for this program.

Are you a teenager looking for something different in your school year? Then Gateways might be for you. Youth who are 13 to 15 years old, interested in life, the outdoors, and choice in their curriculum are perfect for this program.

This summer, community members are being asked two questions: What’s your passion? Want to share it with youth? From there, proposals for one, two, or three week workshops will be submitted, reviewed by Gateways youth, and then 20 to 30 of these will be selected by the youth to make up their school year.

The Gateways learning circle group meets four mornings per week from September to the end of May.

Maybe there are people in the community who love to DJ, dance, build treehouses, fix cars, do art, grow things, climb mountains, travel, sing, play with numbers, act, philosophize, or write novels? Imagine that these people will be your mentors, sharing these passions with you!

In addition, Gateways youth will:

λ Participate in three outdoor trips across BC this year.

λ Choose and complete a year-long independent project of their choice, with a mentor.

λ Participate in peace, social justice, social economics, and service initiatives in the community.

Interested? Hope so!
