Youth Advocate Program expands into three additional communities

The Halifax Regional Municipality is expanding the Youth Advocate Program into the communities of North Preston, Cole Harbour and Lower Sackville.

The Youth Advocate Program helps prevent youth aged 9-15 from engaging in anti-social and criminal behaviors by giving them the opportunity to work with professionals in the community, in all facets of life, to find the strength, support and encouragement to make good decisions for their future.

The expansion of the Youth Advocate Program in North Preston will replace the Souls Strong federally-funded pilot project that concluded earlier this year. In addition to the Youth Advocate Program, the North Preston Community Centre will continue to incorporate successful components of the Souls Strong pilot project to continue to build on its progress in the community.

For more information about the Youth Advocate Program and other ways to help at-risk youth in the municipality, please visit our website.
