Drop-in Programs for youth 14 to 18 years old, one-on-one tutoring for children and youth, volunteer tutoring programs in partnership with School District #22, and Senior’s Connections Projects in Vernon and Lumby are some of the many literacy support programs offered by the The Junction Literacy and Youth Centre.

The Community Foundation provided funding towards The Life Skills Program which was developed for youth who struggle with issues such as: positive self-esteem, self-worth, decision making/making positive choices, peer pressure, negative influences, and unhealthy relationships. The goals are to empower youth by developing strategies to cope with a variety of difficult situations and to engage youth to work towards a positive and healthy lifestyle.
