I am writing on behalf of the Summerland Asset Development Initiative to first express our gratitude to the District of Summerland for supporting the work we do at the SADI Unity Youth Centre.
The generous support provided through grants such as those provided by the District allows SADI to provide a safe, supervised space for Summerland youth to go outside of school hours.
Over the past months we have been working hard to maintain the programs and services we provide at SADI while managing challenging budgets and funding cuts.
We are working hard to introduce new ideas and opportunities to attract kids who are interested in being active, contributing members of SADI and engaged citizens in the community.
We are passionate about fulfilling our mandate to build assets in the youth of Summerland so that they will use their personal and unified strengths to build a strong and positive youth presence in our community.
Despite the challenges we have had to face, we are dedicated to partnering with the families, community partners, and service groups in Summerland to honour the vision that inspired the creation of the Summerland Asset Development Initiative 15 years ago.
Currently, we are focused on assessing the strengths and needs of the organization so that we may formulate a strategy for growth that encourages positive youth and family involvement at SADI in the upcoming years.
We appreciate the support of community partners, business owners, and federal partners who have contributed their time and financial support to our organization. It goes to show that it really does take a village to raise a child.
Administrative Coordinator, SADI
