Project Comeback Information

Why Project Comeback?

Many communities face the twin demographic trends of youth out migration and an aging baby boomer population. Succession is becoming a major issue in many rural communities, as aging baby boomers approach retirement with little in the way of a succession plan or successor. If these trends are not proactively addressed many rural communities will suffer from the closure of their rural business and the continued migration of their youth.

Boys' Town

Boys' Town was started in Kaslo in 2011 through a pilot study called "Helping Boys Become Healthy Men".  The program has continued since and is currently supported The Vancouver Foundation, Columbia Basin Trust, and by LINKS funding from School District #8.  The program is continually evolving to meet the needs of the participants.

Boys' Town participants range from 8 to 12 years of age and they meet once a week after school.  Each week, we work to find mentors and give the boys a chance to socialize and learn in new ways while having a lot of fun.
