Red Fox Youth in the Surrey Leader

In August 2016, Red Fox launched new Active Play-Youth Leadership programming in Surrey, in partnership with the Surrey School District and the Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC. The Surrey Leader spoke to some of the youth participants to find out how they feel about the program:

“I was really shy before I joined Red Fox,” said Muskego, 19, who is finishing his Grade 12 at City Central Learning Centre this fall. “I never really had programs like this when I was in school, so I feel like I’m giving these kids something more than I had, and now I would like to go to college as well.”
