CSC Adventures: September Update

Through the Canada Service Corps we’ve been able to take our work across the country! As you may know our first community was Squamish, BC! Where did we head to next??

Here are some clues, see if you can guess:

  1. This location boasts the biggest population east of Quebec City
  2. It is home to the most visited National Historic Site in Canada
  3. There are six colleges and universities in this town. There are 81 students per 1000 people which is three times the national average.

So what do you think?!

If you guessed Halifax, NS you’re right! We were lucky enough to go to Halifax during the last weekend of September where we worked with ten youth during the weekend Design Lab. We partnered with The Heartwood Centre for Youth Community Development and Laing House.

It was a great weekend, we got a lot accomplished and had a lot of fun. The youth decided that they wanted to create an interactive mental health workbook and wanted to create a video or two to raise awareness about mental health and coping.
