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.
 
Youth and families are invited to be part of the design phase of the Foundry Squamish Centre by completing a survey to provide feedback on the look, services and programs they envision for the new facility. The surveys can be accessed through the following links.
YOUTH SURVEY: CLICK HERE
FAMILY SURVEY: CLICK HERE
 
Youth who complete the survey will be entered into a draw for an iPod Touch and families will be entered into a draw for a grocery store gift card. Surveys will close Wednesday June 24, 2020.

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 on March 30, 2020! Follow us on social media to keep up-to-date and have the opportunity to provide feedback on future programming.
