The city’s youth will now have $50,000 over the next three years to enhance youth-related activities.

The City of Rossland and the Columbia Basin Trust have signed an agreement to provide a total of $50,000 through Community Directed Youth Funds.

The money is earmarked to increase activity, opportunity and services for youth aged 12 to 19 in the Golden City over the next two years.

The project goals and objectives are to identify priorities for youth in Rossland through an inclusive process, then fund opportunities or services that reflect the identified priorities for the targeted age bracket.

The city must now create and maintain an oversight committee comprised of members of the community to administer the money.

The committee must hire a coordinator to work with the committee, provide youth with space and programming, and develop a youth group to engage youth.

The committee must also seek feedback from Rosslanders on how to use the funds in the second year to increase activities and services for youth.
