Broadway Neighbourhood Centre - 185 Young Street, Winnipeg MB R3C 1Y8
Broadway Neighbourhood Centres provides a wide array of activities to community members including: Drop-In/Resources, youth and family oriented athletic and recreational facilities, activities and outings; food programs, hygiene programs, computer lab; youth oriented music and art programs; employment training programs, aboriginal culture programs; parenting support; teen sexuality programs; income tax preparation; venue rentals; seniors programs and more. JUST TV provides youth with opportunities to express themselves through multimedia in a safe, fun, creative environment as an alternative to negative influences such as drugs, gangs and violence. Participants engage in all facets of the audio and video industry and are required to make a video based on their interests, experiences, activities and lives including a body of work aimed at dissuading young children from drugs, crime and gang activity. This program teaches youth to complete a video from start to finish by teaching script writing, set design, photography, acting and production as well as team building and life skills. The program targets youth who are at risk of involvement in gangs, criminal activity or substance abuse. A showcase of all videos and projects is featured at the end of the sessions for families and friends to see and beam with pride.
