Youth and Ecological Restoration
YER provides youth aged twelve to eighteen with one-on-one work experience through ecological restoration methods, ecotherapy practices and mentoring support.
BC Ministry of Children and Family Development has funded YER since 2004.
Through restoring local watersheds with community members,
youth gain a sense of worth, belonging and place.
YER will commence the fall program during the third week of September 2020 with the YER COVID Plan in place.

The Youth and Ecological Restoration Program reached a ten year milestone last year. To commemorate this milestone we had a celebration at Zocalo Cafe and prepared a thorough review of the program.
