Our youth programs focus on building self-esteem, demonstrating the relevancy of education as it relates to the world of work, preparing participants for entry into post-secondary institutions or the workforce and developing essential life skills so that they can enjoy independent living, full community participation and economic self-sufficiency as adults.
Our trained professionals have years of experience working with adolescents and are filled with passion and enthusiasm for helping each of them reach their full potential.
