Future Start

HeartWood engages youth for positive community change. HeartWood supports youth to develop their skills and confidence as community leaders, by offering leadership training and skill building programs to youth and young adults. HeartWood also trains and coaches adults to engage youth by offering professional development workshops and services to adults.

HeartWood has been consulting with the Lunenburg District Office of Community Services for the past 6 years, as they embrace youth engagement to improve their services.
