CARES Society launches new program for youth

Starting this September Earth Matters will be launching a new project for youth 15-25 to get hands on with waste reduction.

This project will involve the development of youth driven re-use action plans, wherein materials will be diverted from waste streams and given new life.

The project will be happening in Nelson and participants can sign up by emailing youth@nelsoncares.ca .

Youth facing barriers are encouraged to apply, the project aims to be as accessible as possible. The project will run from September til December and is free to participate in.

Action plans will be created through a youth driven process. The possibilities are only limited by the imagination and passion of participants. Youth will also create media and public education materials from their experiences.

This project is made possible with support from Columbia Basin Trust, RDCK, Nelson and District Credit Union and  BC Hydro.

Earth Matters is a program of Nelson CARES Society.
