Teen Place Youth Nights Grant

New Germany Area Promotion Society, Teen Place Youth Nights is one of 15 organizations involved in community recreational activities to receive $12,000 from the province's Lighthouses Program,
The program helps community groups provide recreational, educational, cultural and life skills programs for Nova Scotia youth. Justice Minister Ross Landry says it's important to prevent crime before it happens and these grants will help youth get involved in after school recreational programs. The grant applications were reviewed by a crime prevention advisory committee. An additional $180 thousand dollars will be awarded again next year.
