Core Neighbourhood Youth Co-op (CNYC)
Core Neighborhood Youth Co-op has been developed with three main goals in mind: retention, reintegration, and graduation. In partnership with Boys and Girls Club, CNYC provides the support needed to allow each individual student to find success on his or her own educational journey. As a multi-agency program, we encourage youth to find success through education while providing support to achieve personal goals.
- Works with youth who are working on 10-30 level credits.
- Focuses on life skills such as nutrition, budgeting, and relationships to provide practical skills to help build self-esteem.
- Helps students develop a sense of cultural pride and establish relationships with their community through First Nations cultural teachings.
- Works with inner-city youth who have faced challenges that may have removed them for a period of time from a traditional educational setting.
- Works with youth who may have fallen behind in their studies and are in a position or will be in a position to utilize the Adult 12 program.
- Partners with social workers, youth outreach workers and other counselors in order to provide an integrated approach to meeting young people’s often complex needs.
