The Rotary Club of Squamish has supported the new Foundry Sea to Sky with a donation of $30,000 for the Youth Hub.
   On June 9th, we had a tour of the facility hosted by Sea to Sky Community Services. Although the construction is somewhat behind schedule, thanks to the presentation by SSCS staff and the tour, we were able to get a very good understanding of the facility and how it will serve the youth of our community.
   The Foundry is located on the ground floor of the new 76-unit affordable housing complex on Buckley Avenue. The facility will be 5,000 square feet of newly built space for free youth counselling, mental health services, and primary care. Opening is planned for the fall 2022.

The Youth Hub is a separate hang-out and recreational space that will be freely open to all youth. Recreational programs will run out of the Youth Hub coordinated by Squamish Youth Centre staff.
The donation of $30,000 from Squamish Rotary will go towards the provision of a pool table and furnishings, technology equipment, and music and recreation equipment.
