Did you know that the first week of May in BC is “Youth Week”? Youth can sometimes get a bad reputation as social media zombies who aren’t engaged in their communities, but that’s not true. This unique and dynamic time in a person’s life is filled with ups and downs and misunderstandings. It’s also a perfect time to make connections within the community and socially. Youth Week is a week designed with young people in mind, featuring age-appropriate events and activities in each city. What’s even more enticing is that most of the events are completely FREE!
