What the program offers

This program works to increase youth safety, by connecting and referring youth to local resources, focusing on risk reduction and providing the community with a broader understanding of youth issues. The program is open to youth aged 13-23 yrs.

We connect youth to local resources that offer info on:

  • Drug and alcohol awareness
  • Sexual health
  • Employment
  • Housing
  • Youth events and spaces

You will find us out and about in the community (beaches, shopping malls, skate parks and community centres) looking to help answer any questions and making sure youth are safe.
