Benefits of Participation in CTC
Building a web of protection
community is the context in which families raise their children.
Families of all socioeconomic levels, all cultures and races, in
all neighborhoods must recognize the powerful influence of the community
on the development of young people. The community context can increase
the risks in young people's lives, or working hand in hand
with families schools and youth-serving organizations, can help
create a web of protection for youth."
Join one of our Workgroups
We are always looking for community members with time and enthusiasm to help us get things done by joining one of our work groups.
For example, the Data Collection Work Group when active gathers community-level data on problem adolescent behaviors (substance abuse, suicide, delinquency, violence, teen pregnancy, and dropping out of school) and on the amount of risk and protection for the behaviors that exist in Squamish. The workgroup then works together to analyse that data, and to prioritise a list of risk and protective factors that it recommends be targeted in the Community Action Plan.
Volunteer for a Program

If you want to help, but are short on time, financial contributions are greatly appreciated.
