5th on 5th Youth Services, the well-known “go-to” place for resume help, job training, skill development and support for young people, could soon be gone if a temporary funding crisis is not averted.

Volunteers and staff from the 20-year-old agency — which conservative estimates suggest has helped more than 100,000 people since its founding in 1994 — approached Lethbridge City Council on Monday, July 21 for a funding request to bridge the gap between the end of some programs and the beginning of others.

The decision made by council was to advocate on our behalf to the government of Alberta.
We are looking for community support in the form of letters and donations. Click here for sample letters.

Currently 5th on 5th staff manage more than 15,000 visits each year. Approximately 8,000 people are enrolled in formal programs.

The per-person cost for 5th on 5th to be able to assist an individual is approximately $30 per year.
