Stoke Youth Network launches new website

The Stoke Youth Network launches website, which they hope will become portal where youth can find out what’s going on in Revelstoke.

The Stoke Youth Network has launched its website, which they hope will become the portal where youth and young people can find out what’s going on in Revelstoke.

The website includes links to the community calendar, but youth specific opportunities and youth friendly community events will be highlighted. It also has a place where people can submit opportunities they would like to promote amongst the youth community.

The website will also feature the Youth Survival Guide, which was released in the Fall. The guide was created as part of Revelstoke’s youth initiative, with information on everything from where to get your drivers license, to where to get help in a crisis situation, to what fun activities are going on in Revelstoke. The guide complements the Children’s Services Directory and Seniors’ Directory.

“There is lots going on in our community, but youth do not always know what’s happening, who to contact or how to get involved,” said Megan Shandro, Revelstoke’s youth liaison. The creation of the website was recommended in the 2011 Youth Assessment and Youth Action Plan. “It is great to see this and a number of other recommendations that were outlined in the Youth Action Plan come to fruition,” said Shandro.

The website also includes a blog, links to community partners, and explains what the Stoke Youth Network and youth liaison are.

You can visit the website at www.stokeyouthnetwork.ca.
