How many youth in Metro do not finish High School?

Almost one in six Halifax teens won’t finish high school. Many youth in Halifax are failing to fulfill their potential even before they reach adulthood. By investing in the future of our youth we can provide a sense of direction to those in need of it and build a better community as a result.

The centre is open to all youth. Give us a call at (902) 469-2851 for more information about MCCL’s programs. Additionally, check out our Facebook page and on Twitter.
