One of the programs which continued to run when the teachers were on strike earlier this month was the Kildala out of School Care, albeit they were running with limited resources. They were only able to provide the service during the morning hours and after the picket line left.
However, during the last week of the strike, they were able to partner with Riverlodge and operate out of the Kitimat Youth Centre. Riverlodge was already running a program from 9-4. By teaming up with Kildala out of School Care, they were able to extend the hours from 7:00 Am to 6:00 pm.
With last week’s good weather, they were able to access the Riverlodge Field in addition to the gym. However, they were not as busy as they were at Kildala.
“I think it’s great that the CDC and Riverlodge were able to come together to provide this opportunity,” said Janet Hoover.
