The youth we support often lack positive adult role models that provide basic life skills coaching to support a successful transition into adulthood. Our Youth Support Program is designed to support youth in learning basic and advanced life skills to be successful in their independence and become a contributing member or our community. One-on-one support is provided, as well as group activities and recreational opportunities.
Young Parent outreach Program
The Young Hands Parents Support Program provides support to young pregnant and parenting youth. Support includes one to one assistance, referrals to programs to ensure a healthy pregnancy, parenting groups for both parents, and support to obtain appropriate child care to support youth in completing their Grade 12 education. The Young Hands Parenting Support staff is involved in community education and awareness through partnerships, presentations, and group activities.
Youth and Family Counselling
Counsellors offer an empathic ear and help find ways to solve problems and issues within a family.
Our youth services therapist provides therapeutic support to youth and their families. The therapist helps youth and families recognize and build on their strengths in finding creative solutions to their unique circumstances.
