On June 25th at 6:00 pm at Zocalo Café, the Youth and Ecological Restoration Program (YER) is ecstatic to be celebrating ten years of service with vulnerable youth in the Comox Valley.
Youth gain a sense of worth, belonging and place by working with community groups to restore local watersheds.
Since inception, 250 youth have participated in the first phase of the program and 24 have completed phase two. Anyone who has been involved with YER is welcome to attend.
Tapas and celebratory cake will be served at 6:00 pm, with donations to cover costs. A YER slide show at 7:00 will be followed by presentations from two YER graduates and long-term supporter, Doug Hillian. There will be an open microphone period to invite comments from the audience.
Please join us to celebrate ten strong years of providing work experience, training and support for Comox Valley youth. FMI contact Wendy Kotilla at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-336-8487.
