Foundry Sea to Sky

Foundry Sea to Sky is coming fall 2022. Learn more

 

We envision a community where all young people feel supported and able to move forward with confidence into their adult lives.​

​Coming Fall 2022, Foundry Sea to Sky will integrate health, social and recreational services to make it easier for young people and their families to access mental health supports before their concerns have a severe impact on their health and well-being. Core services will include primary health care (e.g. physical health, sexual health), mental health and substance use services, social services (e.g. vocational, educational, and recreational opportunities) and youth and family peer support.

Sea to Sky youth need your support

The need for youth supports have never been greater. Youth in the Sea to Sky Corridor experience mental health challenges over and above the provincial average and they make up more than 10% of our population (Census 2016).

A donation to Foundry Sea to Sky is a critically important investment in a strong, sustainable future for the children and youth of today and tomorrow. Your generosity will contribute to improving physical, mental, and economic health for youth and their families for generations to come. No donation is too small.

Thank you for supporting our vision to live in a community where all young people feel supported and able to move forward with confidence into their adult lives.

Future location of Foundry Sea to Sky

I like coming to the Youth Centre after school to have a safe, warm place to hang out.
