What a great proposal that can definitely help disadvantaged youth that need it the most
This is a well over due project which is very much needed in every community. Immigrants all over have been ignored from various opportunities in society, especially the youth. Good initiative. I hope others support this idea too.
Yes a great proposal for the underrepresented youth of the city.
Great idea for the immigrant youth of the area. As more youth struggle with mental health issues. This will provide a great initiative
I support this
