As the year draws to a close, I wanted to share some of the highlights and accomplishments of the Timmins YWH in 2021.
Nikki St. Clair, YWH Assistant Coordinator, has done a tremendous job creating the attached 2021 Year in Review.
The most significant highlight this year was the Ministry of Health announcement in June that the Timmins YWH would receive permanent funding and become one of four new Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario (YWHO) sites in the province.
As a result, we are thrilled that the YWH will be hiring Youth Wellness Team staff and establishing a permanent hub location in downtown Timmins in early 2022. It will be wonderful to welcome youth back to in-person hub activities in the new year. Stay tuned for more details!
I am proud of our staff who continue to creatively develop fun and engaging virtual programming for our youth, offering over 100 Instagram Live activities over the course of the past year.
As always, your ongoing support and encouragement are greatly appreciated.
Best wishes for a happy and safe holiday season.
