Every Friday, from 7 to 9 p.m., (except holidays), approximately 20 to 25 youth get together for an evening of fun at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre. The evenings are sponsored by Yellowhead Community Services (YCS), with minimal funding coming from the United Way. YCS have been running the program for four years, where they offer the youths video games, movies, art and baking lessons, a mini concession in one room, and ball games or other sports like badminton in the gymnasium.
YCS say they are always ready to consider activities that may be suggested by the youth, and they invite all interested youth to stop in on Friday and check out the fun. For more information about the Friday youth evening, just drop in, or call YCS at 250-672-9773.
