The new Youth Centre, which opened in January 2017, replaces the previous 2,100 sq. ft. youth building that was purchased second-hand and moved to the Community Core in 1998. Usage of the old youth centre has been long exceeding capacity, with programs gaining popularity throughout the growing community.
The new Youth Centre will be equipped with several unique and sustainable features, including:
Other features of the new Youth Centre at Westbank First Nation include ten offices, a space for WFN's After-School Program (top floor), Youth programs and services (bottom floor), and Early Years programs and services (top floor).
Benefits include the promotion of active and healthy living, mentorship, engagement and leadership opportunities for youth, as well as safety and pride in the newly lit, tree-lined boulevards and pathways connecting the greater community.
Westbank First Nation proudly opened the $5.5 million Youth Centre in January 2017. The general contractor for the project, WIBCO Construction, ensured the project was completed on time and on budget.
Construction of Phase Two of the Youth Centre will include an outdoor recreation area, which is scheduled for construction in summer 2017.
