Foundry Prince George

In January, the YMCA of Northern BC announced that it will be the operator of Foundry Prince George, one of five one-stop facilities being created in the province to meet the needs of 12-24-year olds. “Foundry will bring together a multitude of existing youth services from our valued partners in Prince George,” said Amanda Alexander, CEO of YMCA of Northern BC. “These partners will come together in one building, working collaboratively to meet youth needs.”

Foundry’s interdisciplinary team will include general practitioners, nurse practitioners, mental-health and substance-use clinicians, youth and family peer support and navigation workers, youth and guardianship workers, income assistance and supported employment support outreach workers, Aboriginal child-service social workers and other Aboriginal service providers.
