After ten months of local youth support and planning, the first year of Rossland’s Youth Action Network (YAN) has come to an end.
The YAN is a project administered by the City of Rossland with funding from the Columbia Basin Trust’s Directed Youth Funds.
Their goal is to provide youth with relevant, interesting and engaging programs and events.
With this year’s purchase of a new 3D printer, a session of four workshops began.
“It’s a pretty amazing program,” said Pam Shirley who is with Rossland Recreation.
The workshops were well attended and the youth were very interested in learning about the 3D printer and how to use it, Shirley explained.
This state-of-the-art printer supported youth in creating designs and learning how to 3D print.
The sessions were held at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning, for youth between the ages of 12-18.

The YAN will be running a few programs this summer including a youth pool party on Tuesday, July 13 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. as well as the Dig to Ride and Rossglen Bike Park Revitalization bike programs.
