SNA Youth Crew
This little catering service started when youth in the Spence neighbourhood told the Spence Neighbourhood Association (SNA) they wanted (and needed!) jobs. The SNA listened, opening this vibrant employment project in 2004. Since then, the Youth Crew catering service has grown into a bustling small business, hiring hundreds of youth from the neighbourhood every year, helping them obtain employable skills and build their confidence.
The Lavender Bath Soak is made by the Youth Crew, creating employment opportunities for youth in the community to make some money and gain work experience.
