Local at-risk youth close generation gap

A local initiative for at-risk youth is trying to close the generation gap.

The Take a Hike program enrols 14 students from the region who do weekly community service to organizations and individuals.

On Tuesday the students visited seniors at Castle Wood Village in Castlegar.

Take A Hike is in its second year and engages at-risk youth through a unique combination of adventure-based learning, academics, therapy and community involvement.
