Nanaimo Family Life Association’s Lifeworks After School Program received a big boost thanks to the generosity of the Nanaimo Addiction Foundation.

A motion was passed at the foundation’s annual general meeting to allocate $13,800 to Family Life’s work with young people ages 15-18.

The program includes visual arts, music, drama, graffiti art, dance and more to help at-risk youth acquire personal skills that create resiliency when substance abuse opportunities arise.
