The White Rock Youth Collective is one of 120 semi-finalists in the Aviva Community Fund Competition.
The achievement brings the group of youth one step closer to being awarded $100,000 to start up a safe and sober space in White Rock for teens.
The next step for the group is to continue garnering votes for their project from Dec. 1-10.
“We will need to be really committed and consistent with our voting in the semi-finals because we will be up against people who had three to five times the votes we did,” said Alexandra Neighbourhood House youth and family worker Jesse Kergan in a release. “But we know we can do it.”
In the meantime, the youth collective will host a film screening Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. at the White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave.
The film screening will include the latest short film created by the group, as well as a question-and-answer period.
