Community Asset Mapping

CVYC has been working together on a community asset mapping exercise. We have been identifying the following:

  • Youth friendly zones
  • No-go/unsafe zones
  • Youth programs and services
  • Places we like to hang out

We have also been brainstorming what we want in our city. Some ideas include – rotating open mic nights, affordable housing, more youth programs in our neighbourhoods, another sexual assault center, community garden plots, more accessible transit, and public art. 

Conclusions from our community asset map:

  • Depending on our identity, safe spaces for some people might be no-go zones for others
  • Programs and services for youth as well as the places we like to hang out are mostly centralized in the Downtown Victoria area
  • Public parks and beaches are some of the main places we like to hang out and spend our time with friends and family
  • Transportation is a major accessibility issue for us
