SOOKE YOUTH COUNCIL
& YOUTH ENGAGEMENT
The Sooke Youth Council is a group of young people aged 13-21, facilitating new opportunities for youth to be leaders in grassroots community action and regional decision-making in Sooke. Its mission is to improve the perception and outlook of Sooke through youth engagement in positive progress. Its objectives are to initiate and organize a host of new events and initiatives, such as concerts and monthly film nights.
Now in its 5th year, this summer program aims to provide a rich play-based learning environment for 4 weeks, immersing students in literacy activities designed to foster their existing acadamic skills, and to improve their self-confidence and enjoyment in these subject areas.
In 2015, the program was funded by TELUS, Coast Capital Savings, the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, Vancity, HRSDC Summer Youth Employment Strategy, the Edith Lando Foundation, Rotary Club of Sooke, Sooke Harbourside Lion's Club, School District #62 (Sooke), private donors, and local supporters including T'Sou-ke Nation, Andy's 2-for-1 Pizza and Cathy's Corner Cafe. These partners made it possible to offer the camp to families at no charge.
The 2016 full report is available through the link below.
