Haliburton Youth Wellness Hub!
The Haliburton Youth Wellness Hub is being co-designed and led by youth, for the youth of Haliburton County. Many community services are coming together with leadership from Point In Time and Haliburton Highlands Health Services to support youth in developing this collaborative, multi-use space. The Hub will be a one-stop-shop for recreation, support, and gathering with peers.
We are looking for our youth to get involved to share ideas and vision to make this a safe, inclusive space where all youth between 12-25 can meet with friends, learn new skills, join in fun activities and get support when needed – as needed.
So far we’ve heard this space should be:
- fun (drop-in and planned recreational activities)
- comfortable and welcoming
- accessible for everyone
We’ve also heard youth say they want to see:
- workshops and learning opportunities
- access to healthy food
- transportation for those who need it
- supports for those who might need them:
- mental health, physical health, addictions, sexual health, peer-to-peer, parenting, educational, financial, vocational, etc.
We’re thrilled to be starting design work and consultation on the building we have purchased and will be ours at the end of July. The Youth Wellness Hub will be located at 12 Dysart Ave., in Haliburton. It’s just down the street from the new Haliburton Junction Skate Park and Arena and is within walking distance of all of the youth-serving schools in Haliburton.
