Welcome to the new Virtual Youth Hub. The place to find all important information as it relates to youth in Squamish.

Make sure to bookmark this page and check out the links on the sidebar to see program information, a youth focused monthly calendar, and resources for youth in crisis.

big thingsAfter comprehensive collaboration with Squamish’s youth and partner agencies, the District adopted a Youth Strategy in late 2019.

The previously closed Squamish Youth Resource Centre is being replaced by the new Foundry Squamish Centre where youth aged 12-24 will be able to access primary care, youth and family peer supports, walk-in counselling, mental health and substance use services, and social services all under one roof www.foundrybc.ca.
Want to be a part of the Foundry Squamish Project?
Sign up to be on our Youth or Family Advisory Committees.
We are looking for youth ages 12-24 and families to participate in the project by forming two advisory committees; One specific to you and one specific to families.
Committees will work with us throughout the project to ensure voices of the community are heard and that services match needs of local youth and families.
Apply to be a committee member – send an expression of interest that includes:
·         Your contact information
·         Which committee you’re interested in joining (Youth or Families)
·         Your general availability to participate in meetings
  • Brief description as to why you want to be on the committee
Email cydney.lyons@sscs.ca to apply!

what does this mean A key value of "Bring the Programs to the Youth" was identified and as such, programming should occur in places such as the new Youth Hub, neighbourhood centres, library, recreation facilities and schools. Youth also requested that the District and partner agencies expand programming, most notably in the areas of Arts & Culture, Wellness, and Leadership & Life Skills.

Squamish Youth Services is happy to begin its new programming model. Follow us on social media to keep up-to-date and have the opportunity to provide feedback on future programming.

    Where? I see no address where this Center is going to be.So many wonderful programs being organized for Youth...
    When is the District going to recognize that there is a Senior population in Squamish that needs the same attention the Youth are getting. Don’t sideline we Seniors!!
