JumpStart – youth will learn in a studio setting about music,
radio broadcasting and internet podcasting.

to deal with their day to day living challenges such as homelessness,
displacement, language barriers, citizenship status, etc.
The Center will also provide educational, health & fitness, workforce development,
social services as well as recreational programs for all community youth.
