HeartWood Centre for Community Youth Development is a dynamic and innovative not-for-profit, registered charity focused on creating meaningful youth engagement to build healthy communities. We have provided our services within Nova Scotia since 1988; we also have affiliations and partnerships nationally and have delivered programs across the country and internationally. Currently we are looking for new volunteers for our Board of Directors.
HeartWood’s mission is “youth engagement for positive community change.” We do this by Helping Youth to positively engage in their communities and develop their skills and capacity to take action and make change; training and coaching adults in youth engagement strategies and tools; working directly with larger systems over an extended period of time to improve their youth engagement strategies and inform their policies to better serve youth.
