Program description

Designed by and for young people, the Youth Wellness Centre is a safe space for Indigenous, LGBTTQ+, racialized and marginalized youth to access the full range of our services. Sign up for skill-building opportunities, get help with homework, access mental health supports or just hang out with friends. Our team can also connect young people with community-based services to find supportive housing and employment opportunities.
