The Whitney Pier Youth Club depends on the support of the community to assist with the supervision and maintenance of programming. We also establish partnerships with various educational agencies in the community that can offer specific resources and services to youth. We have established work placement programs with CBU-BACS, NSCC-Marconi Human Services Program, and Island Career Academy Youth Worker Program.
