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 9th year, this summer program provide a rich play-based learning environment for 4 weeks, immersing students in literacy & numeracy activities designed to foster their existing academic skills, and to improve their self-confidence and enjoyment in these subject areas.
In 2019, the program was funded by EMCS Society, Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, the Rotary Club of Sooke, Excellence in Literacy Foundation, Decoda Literacy Solutions - Sooke Region Literacy Task Group, Sooke Harbourside Lions, HRSDC, as well as donations from Cathy's Corner Cafe, Andy's 2-for-1 Pizza, and School District No. 62(Sooke). These funders made it possible to offer the camp to families at no charge.
