Funding provided for two projects for Burns Lake youth

Two youth projects in Burns Lake have received funding from the Nechako Kitamaat Development Fund Society.

The first is for the Burns Lake & District Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Lakes District Secondary School Parent Advisory Council which received $3,000.

This is for two career days that will connect grade 9 students with local professionals.

Additionally, the Burns Lake Youth Soccer Association received $5,000.

A news release said this is for the Soccer Association to purchase equipment, nets, coaching and equipment for referees after having a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This funding is a part of a new NKDF funding cycle which is the under $5,000 Program.

According to the society, grant requests for under $5,000 are accepted on a continuous basis within a two-week response time.

Anyone looking for more information is being encouraged to go on the society’s website.
