On Nov. 27, the doors to a new youth centre for Nak’azdli Whut’en opened welcoming the entire community especially youth and children.

“This is made for our youth especially those 13 – 18 years. It will be a safe place for them to hang out,” said Nolan Sagalon, youth coordinator for Nak’azdli.

Sagalon has recently been added to the Nak’azdli Health Centre Team and he will be based at the brand new building that was built over the summer months.

“I work with the youth of Fort St. James to help keep them on a healthy and honest path by giving the youth a safe and fun environment to be in,” Sagalon said.

“The youth have been waiting for a new youth centre for years and now that it has been built, the youth are excited to see what both myself and the youth centre have to offer this community.”

Sagalon is planning on collaborating with many different organizations in helping promote positive programs and relationships in the community and to help keep youth engaged and educated.

The spacious centre includes a sitting area, kitchen, games area and television.

“The youth deserve the new centre. It was built for them and for our future generations,” Sagalon said.
