Healthy weekend fun for our young people

Our young people had a great and healthy weekend. Saturday was an amazing hiking trip to Eagle Bluffs in West Vancouver. Our youth worked hard and were rewarded with a fantastic view.

Sunday was rock climbing fun at The Hive in Vancouver. We want to thank The Hive for providing a discount and making this outing more affordable for us.

Our young people at ROP created a delicious brunch this past weekend as well.

Recreation outings & creating amazing meals are more than just fun, they also help teach our youth important skills and show our youth that you do not need alcohol or drugs to have fun.

Young ladies have fun crafting together

Recently I came to work at the women’s Crisis Program to find a group of 6 young ladies seated around a table in the living room area. They were all smiling and laughing and working away on something but I couldn’t figure out what it was. As I went to join the youth at the table, I could see they were decorating some brown paper bags. They were colorful and covered in inspirational words and quotes. I asked them what the bags were for. “We’re going on an outing to the movies tomorrow! We thought, instead of buying popcorn for everyone, we would makes some snack bags out of the stuff we have here for people to take with them.” “What a great idea!” I told them.

It’s such a nice thing to see the youth come together and work on a project like this. To see them happy and smiling and enjoying the company of their peers, despite the challenges that they are faced with every day.
