Letters: Hope for our youth

Sooke Youth Council is a positive for the community

I would like to pass on to all those out there who are not aware of the Sooke Youth Council, operating out of Edward Milne Community School, about the exciting, positive energy from these young people.

They are fiscally responsible, proactive, caring about the community and those in need, mindful of other students, young and older and respectful of adults and welcoming to input from others.

They meet every second Wednesday and have a responsible coordinator in Ebony Logins, and carry out various objectives for the community.

They have been organizing pizza and a movie at the theatre and are also engaging in another incredible project, which will be left up to them to bring to the public. It is encouraging to know we have a strong leadership and youth council as peers for other students. These young people volunteer their time, from their busy studies as well.

Kudos to them and all the best.
