A cheque for $10,000 was presented on behalf of the company for the Reconnect Youth Building Project, which is currently being built by students with Northern Lights College’s residential construction program at the corner of Ninth Street and 103 Avenue. The project has benefited from donations of money, time and materials from several local businesses, organizations and individual contractors.
The Reconnect Youth Services offers services such as individual counselling, group education, crisis intervention, leisure activities, life skills training and referrals to other services for youth under the age of 19 who live on the streets, or who are at risk of living on the streets. The new drop-in centre is expected to be completed by late April/early May of next year.
