Hey Ruby and Sarina, I’m happy to hear about rec groups being successful for our youth. We do run them here in Kelowna, but typically they have minimal attendance, but not always. I agree with what was discussed about allowing youth the space to relax and build relationships instead of focusing on their mental health. Also, I recently participated in a mini golf event where we had a decent turn out. Everyone focused on mini golf, but also spent time engaging and conversing with one another, which was really nice to see. I think ongoing promotion of these groups is important, as our youth tend to not want to attend here in Kelowna, especially initially, but when they do I find they really enjoy the groups and the social interaction.
