* Workshop/program fees*At the Rossland Youth Action Network we strive to offer diverse and welcoming programming for all teens. We try and offer programming and workshops that are accessible to all youth. If you find your youth wishes to attend a program or workshop that does in fact have a fee (usually to pay for special materials or instructor cost) and the fee is a barrier for your youth to attend, please contact us asap to discuss a subsidy or ‘scholarship’ for your youth. We don’t want $$ to prevent participation of any interested youth. Contact us at please.

      Hi Shillene,

      How old are your youth? The instructors are in the process of reconfiguring classes. And as such, there are no classes until May 12th. Sorry, we do not have carpooling options from Trail at this time.
