• On February 27, 2009, the Open Door Community Youth Network was launched in Gander. This CYN will service youth from Gander, Appleton, Glenwood and Benton. Our mandate is to provide a variety of services for youth 12-18 years of age. Its inception resulted from a need to decrease barriers to education and/or employment, and improve the quality of life for young people. This youth network is a culmination of customized programs and services created by youth for youth.
