More Information about the Project...

In December 2015, the City of Rossland reallocated a building to create a sustainable, rent free, dedicated youth space in Rossland. This building, located between Rossland Summit School and the site of the Rossland Skatepark, is ideal for youth engagement and programming but required extensive renovations valued at $200,000. Through a combination of in kind donations and discounts from contractors and suppliers, work of volunteers, grants, and fundraising, the project is almost complete.

Yodel.org is waiving all administration fees for the use of this site for this campaign.
