In 2010, The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre expanded it services to youth by opening the Youth Zone, a recreational centre for youth ages 12-18. The Youth Zone operated as a safe space for youth that offered activities, a positive social environment, programming and direction responsive to their needs.
The Youth Zone performed successfully for 9 years, benefitting a generation of young people. It developed many community relations and partnerships over the years, and has been a conducive resource for the 100 Mile House area.
The Youth Zone was relaunched in 2019 as Raven Youth Activity Centre to renew interest and engagement with the current generation of young people, and to strengthen ties with youth and the community.
Raven is committed to being a consistent presence to youth, imparting education on life skills and providing access to art, cultural and educational activities. Raven aims to ensure positive outcomes for youth and engages them with community services and programs.
Raven has broadened its programming to include 10-12 year olds with a special drop-in day once a week, giving the group an introduction to the space while addressing a gap in services available in the community. To contact or locate Raven, please see our Visit page.
