Great news!! It’s official… we have a new Ladysmith Youth Plan! Thanks in large part to the many youth that were involved in it’s design.
Over several months, YOUth and community members were engaged in a public process that invited participation from a broad spectrum of folks interested in taking a critical look at what we currently offer youth in Ladysmith and creating a vision for where we could be in the future. Thank you so much to everyone who was involved in supporting youth through the process, including the Town of Ladysmith, Stz’uminus Employment Centre, Ladysmith Resources Centre Association, Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools, Social Planning Cowichan and all the folks who participated at the focus groups and open houses.
The plan examines identified strengths and challenges, highlights key focus areas with rationale and provides recommendations to move the plan forward. We are proud to share the plan that has been enthusiastically adopted by Council (August 2018) and are looking forward to next steps as we work toward the recommendations of the plan. We’re looking forward to creating exciting new opportunities for YOUth in Ladysmith.
If you have any questions about the plan, or have an interest in being involved, please contact Sue Glenn, Community Programs and Services Supervisor, at (250)245-6424 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
YOU did it! The Ladysmith YOUth Plan is official!
