About Us


Welcome to Westminster Youth Project.

The purpose of this group is to give youth a voice in the Westminster Community. Youth will meet at least once a month to discuss opportunities to engage with the community about things that matter to them.

This group focuses on EMPOWERING youth. We will engage in workshops, learning activities and seminars specific to the needs of our youth. We will offer workshops and training in areas of Restorative Practices, Restorative Circles, Bullying Intervention, Drug and Gang Awareness, and many others. There are also opportunities for peer-to-peer mentoring, job shadowing, peer-learning programs and service learning hours.

We will also be organizing a youth council to serve as representives of the youth living in Westminster. They will be the eyes and ears in the community. They will engage with youth in the community, recruit youth council members, conduct surveys, and hold meetings to discuss the concerns and feedback of their peers. The youth council chair will report back to our program committee monthly with a synopsis ooff the information they've gathered.

Westminster Youth Project is a subsidiary of inPOWER, Inc. and a program of the Rise Up Community Center.
