"Students Do Well If They Can"

YouthNet is a networking group for school district and community professionals who work with youth in the Central Okanagan. 
YouthNet was originally created 25 years ago and was restarted 4 years ago by Arc Programs as an opportunity to network, share ideas, discuss new programs 
and discuss any trends or changes that are observed in the community.
 It is a great way to ensure that the community is working together for the youth that we serve! 


The YouthNet meeting is held on the last Friday of every month from September-May in the gymnasium at Central School - Richter Street at 8:00am. 
Please contact Kristi Field, YouthNet Facilitator at or (250) 763-2977 ext. 111  if you would like to participate.
