West-End Youth Motivators (WE-YM)

The West-End Youth Motivators (WE-YM) are culturally diverse youth from the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre’s catchment area who are committed to making a difference in their communities. The focus of WE-YM is to identify issues important to Ottawa youth, raise awareness and take action.  WE-YM is supported by PQCHC, the Youth Services Bureau and the City of Ottawa through the Michele Heights Community Centre.

To participate in WE-YM, youth must be between 14 and 20 years of age, live in the PQ catchment area, be knowledgeable about community / youth issues and, of course, be excited about contributing their time and ideas!

The West-End Youth Motivators meet weekly at Michele Heights Community Centre (2955 Michele Drive) on Fridays from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. For information on applying to join WE-YM, contact Mohamed Sofa at m.sofa@pqchc.com, or by phone at 613-820-4922 ext. 3567.
