MISSISSAUGA – Nexus Youth Services is thrilled to share the good news of its recent grant success! On December 13, representatives from JCS Canada Charity Fund presented a $5,000 cheque to Nexus at its Annual Holiday Feast for youth.
The $5,000 grant will support group programs offered at the Nexus Youth Centre, available to youth free-of-charge on a drop-in basis. These programs are crucial to engaging youth in an approachable way, using arts to provoke discussion while providing coping skills for mental health-related issues and information about community resources.
