The Manitoba government is investing $1.5 million to fund enhanced youth recreation programs.

Part of the funding will go to leadership development and co-operative training in 84 sites in Winnipeg’s downtown and the north end.

“Our community centres are a meeting place at the heart of our neighbourhoods, and they provide a structured space for our youth to get together with friends in a safe, positive environment,” said Mayor Brian Bowman.

The investment also provides seed money for agencies and organizations to purchase equipment or program supplies, invest in site preparation or provide leadership training.
