Artist of the Peace: Ground Level Youth Group

The Peace River Museum, Archives and Mackenzie Centre is pleased to host the art of the Ground Level Centre Youth Group. The group was run by Rhonda Warren and features a number of different kinds of projects. We hope many are able to come out and view the hard work of these young people.
Note that there is no fee to view the art wall. There is a $2 admission fee to see the Museum.
Please see below for some more information on the Youth Group, which is open to all young people, or come to the Museum to get a brochure and a calendar of events!

From the Youth Centre: "The Ground Level Youth Centre Project provides youth with opportunities, through programs and activities to connect with positive caring and supporting adult role models who are available to assist youth to build on their strengths, identify their weaknesses, and thus encourage them to be the best that they can be.
All programs, services and activities are structured in a manner so that youth are empowered to address the challenges they face and determine their own future with a sense of pride in a safe, secure and culturally sensitive environment.
Youth are actively involved in the project design, development and delivery at all levels within the project through their attendance and participation at regularly scheduled Youth Council meetings and daily interaction with project staff members.

Program Mission Statement:
"All youth are valued, supported and provided with opportunities to realize their individual and collective potential."

The mission statement is inclusive of all youth in our community and allows us to develop new programs, or revise to strengthen current programs and activities so that the ever changing needs of the youth are being met."
