The Little Black Book

The Little Black Book

The Little Black Book is an easy to use resource guide for youth in the Surrey, Langley, Delta, White Rock and Maple Ridge areas. It provides teenaged youth with helpful information about a variety of services including health, violence prevention, education, counseling, recreation and more.

Since 2006, Community Justice Initiatives (CJI) provided The Little Black Book in hard copy free of charge to youth, service providers, community groups, youth agencies, aboriginal youth care workers, and schools in Langley and Surrey. Over 2,000 copies were distributed.

In 2009, due to the overwhelming demand and with two more communities joining, 15,000 copies were printed and distributed to youth throughout Langley, Surrey, Delta and White Rock.

Unfortunately, 2010 brought government funding cuts that dramatically impacted the Little Black Book. CJI decided to take a new approach to help make this worthwhile resource sustainable. An online version was developed to be more cost efficient, and also environmentally conscious. It required less printing, and minimized waste. An online version of the Little Black Book enables our agency to continue to offer this resource, in a way that is accessible and manageable, to more youth. It will also ensure the continuation of this important project.
