Youth Employment

In partnership with the City of Regina and funded by the Government of Canada’s Building Safer Communities Fund (BSCF), Growing Young Movers (G.Y.M) has expanded its youth-centered programming and employment opportunities at the mâmawêyatitân centre. G.Y.M. believes that meaningful employment opportunities empower youth, increases high school completion rates, and enhances the transition into the workforce beyond high school.
