Have you heard about our Slocan Valley Youth Centre Van?

In 2014 the Slocan Valley Youth Network asked youth ages 12-19 yrs how they would spend a grant to enhance their experience growing up in the Slocan Valley. They wanted to improve access to transportation and they wanted to buy a bus. A 15 passenger van was purchased providing Slocan Valley Youth with free, reliable, and safe transportation up and down the Slocan Valley.

The van runs Fridays and Saturdays from 5:00 pm- 12:00 am. See our schedule for times.
** This is free transportation for Slocan Valley Youth, however,  all youth MUST sign the user agreement(can be picked up on first ride).
