The New Youth Project is a FREE 25-week community action project provided by the Victoria West Community Centre for youth ages 14-18. The project's mission is to meaningfully engage with youth, to invite and involve young people in their community, building on their strengths, capacities and passions.
The project will include 3 groups of 6 youth, who will meet for 3 hours a week on either Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday evenings from October to May. The objective of these groups is to strengthen the ability of at-risk youth to make a positive impact on society through selfless action, collaboration, initiative and community partnerships.
Join us on Saturday October 18th from 12:30-3:30PM for a fabulous open house.
Habourside Rotary is the project's founding force, and it is through their support that The New Youth Project has been made possible. We would like to extend our gratitude to Harbourside Rotary for their generous contribution.
Behind the VWCA banners, lots of corn was eaten and zucchini cars were made.
Many volunteers helped out, cooking corn, setting up and taking down...
The Vic West Art Questers inspired artists to find evidence of place. Two of this years pie contest winners were kids. And of course there was music to enjoy as bands played through out the afternoon.
Eight year old Sasha and her six year old sister, Jolie, entered pies in the Corn Roast Pie contest. Sasha won first place and Jolie got an honourable mention. Secrets of their pie making success are cinnamon, lemon, red apples, green apples and carmelized brown sugar.
A big thank you goes out to everyone who made this year's Corn Roast a Success!!
The communications committee is working on revamping the VWCA Website and would like to know what you think. Let us know by filling out our little survey.
The Pep is a new volunteer newsletter, bought to you by the Victoria West Community Association, to help Victoria West volunteers and those who are planning Victoria West community events and projects keep in touch.
The Pep is organized into two major categories:
Short Term Opportunities: Like the Vic West Fest or Potlucks: for those who like to help but are short on time.
Longer Term Opportunities: Like the Food Security Collective or emergency preparedness: for those who would like to be a part of an on going project to help build awareness and strategies in the event of an earthquake or learn how to grow a garden.
