Communities That Care
Williams Lake, Anahim Lake and Prince George
Communities That Care is a research-based and outcome-focused approach that brings together the whole community to promote positive youth development and engagement through proactive prevention programs and supports. It looks at the roots of problem adolescent behaviour such as substance abuse, violence and depression and enhances protective factors such as an increase in community support, addictions support, and positive peer association to mitigate the occurrence of crime or problem behaviour in youth. The program is tailored to the needs, issues and resources of each community.
A Communities That Care pilot program in Williams Lake and Anahim Lake was announced Jan. 15, 2009. It brings together the Social Planning Council of Williams Lake and Area and the City of Williams Lake with the goal of fostering positive youth development in Williams Lake and Anahim Lake.
On Feb. 13 a Communities That Care pilot program was also launched in Prince George. A partnership between the Ministry of Children and Family Development and the City of Prince George , the program will focus on fostering inclusive and caring communities to support youth development.
