See our Facebook Page

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 youth to make a positive impact on society through selfless action, collaboration, initiative and community partnerships.

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.

Put some Pep in your Community Step

2014 The Pep Newsletter ImageThe 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.
