B&G club seeks community ideas

Providing services for youth and families in Nanaimo is the premise behind a community meeting hosted by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island.

The organization is hosting an Open Space workshop Tuesday (Nov. 8) in the John Barsby Community Secondary School library from 6:30- 9 p.m.

Community members and stakeholders are invited to share ideas about the needs and concerns of children and families.

Workshop topics include: programs and services the Boys and Girls Club should be providing in Nanaimo now and in the future; barriers preventing participation in programs and services; facility design and location; and gaps in service for ages newborn to six, six to 12, age 12 to 18, and families?

Participants can share ideas to help the organization  determine which needs fall within its mandate and take appropriate action.

For more information or to RSVP, please call Len Manuel at 250-754-3215, ext. 36 or e-mail lmanuel@bgccvi.com.
