Sponsored by the Chantal Bérubé Memorial Fund the Youth of the Month Award is presented to a local youth. Any youth, aged 12-18 can be nominated by anyone for anything the nominator feels to be a positive attribute and/or action that should be recognized. The nominations will be review and a monthly award recipient will be chosen. To nominate a youth for positive recognition, please fill out and submit the Youth of the Month Nomination form.
CBYC is a trendy facility that offers a safe and supervised environment where youth can mingle and socialize with peers and participate in various recreational, preventative and educational programs. With a membership of over 350 youth and new members arriving daily, the centre is a busy Town facility.
In partnership with FCSS, CBYC offers an educational program called “Let’s Talk”. This workshop includes a free meal to those who attend. This year, topics have included: self esteem, healthy relationships, dinner with the Mayor and Council, communication skills, and nutrition.
