The small rural town of Enderby, located in the North Okanagan area of BC, has a population of 3,000 people. The Splatsin First Nation, with over 800 members, resides on reserve lands adjacent to the town. Youth in the community, regardless of ethnic background, have been underserved by social services and community groups for many years. As a result, these youth are particularly vulnerable to the risks and dangers of small town isolationâ€”including drugs, alcohol, violence, poverty, joblessness, difficulty at school and with family relations. Youth in this community urgently need help to overcome these barriers and challenges and to acquire the skills that will lead to success in lifeâ€”including positive family and community relations and secure, meaningful employment or connection to education. This project will establish a Youth Outreach Worker to bring the community together around common concerns for their youth by connecting with young people at-risk and developing long-term solutions to help them begin an uninterrupted journey to a healthy, secure and self-sufficient life.
