The Pathfinder Youth Centre Society is dedicated to helping at-risk young people (ages 15-30) overcome the obstacles that prevent them from returning to school or entering the workforce. Our certified youth counselors mentor to the specific needs of each client – teaching life skills, preparing the way for re-entry into school and/or accessing employment training.
We provide these services to approximately 90 participants across Greater Vancouver each year. To date, many of our Pathfinder alumni have found full or part-time employment or achieved a BC High School Graduation diploma.
August 10th, 2019 marks the date of our fifth annual Fiesta Blanca Charity Fundraiser. Fiesta Blanca is an all white attire summer event that will be held at Township 7 Vineyards & Winery in Langley, which offers a “Wine Country” experience, without having to leave Metro Vancouver.
There will be plenty of silent auctions and raffles, wine tasting, live music, dancing, food, and tonnes of fun that you would not want to miss out on this summer! All proceeds from the event will go towards Pathfinder Youth Centre Society, in order to raise desperately needed funds for the youth mentorship programs.
Come out and enjoy a fun-filled day, while supporting a great cause for youth in our community.
Back in December 2017 Pathfinder Youth Centre Society was invited to Ottawa to participate in an information gathering session by The Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Persons with Disabilities (HUMA). Ruth and Orville Lee were given the opportunity to share their years of experience and knowledge of working with youth in the “trenches”.
The session was held at the House of Commons and was designed to look at the way experiential learning can guide younger Canadians through the transitions from high school, post-secondary education and the labour market. Some of the topics discussed were youth underemployment after completing their education and youth unemployment and how it harms the transition to the workforce.
