We provide a full range of youth services from community-based one-to-one support to full-time residential attendance programs, including tutoring, mentoring, employment readiness, job placements and curfew monitoring.
Why we do it...
Our aim is to help youth develop the attitudes, skills, and relationships they need for a future that doesn’t include involvement in the court system.
How we do it...
We work from a strengths-based approach, choosing to focus and build on the strengths of those we serve rather than their deficits. Supported by their probation officer and by their worker, youth are encouraged to set goals in a range of life areas.
Where we do it...
We provide services throughout the Lower Mainland.
What we do…
We provide each youth with a one-to-one worker. These workers work to build a positive relationship with each young person. Through this relationship our workers are able to encourage and support the youth to develop appropriate educational, vocational, interpersonal and social skills, and to function in society in a healthy, positive manner. They also support youth to participate in planned activities, to access other community resources and to comply with the conditions of their court orders. The program complements the case management and supervision provided by the youth’s probation officer.
We accept referrals from probation officers and social workers working for the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD).
