WHO ARE WE
In 2014 we launched Youth One, giving young people an accessible, safe, fun and free place to hang out after school. What we didn't realize at the time is how quickly it would gain support locally, provincially and even internationally. Now, Youth One has become much more then just a drop in centre. It has become a community, offering support, services and programs; all of it gathered together in one place to give young people the most opportunity in life. We hope that with the influence with which we have been entrusted, we will build up our young people, and they in turn will influence their communities and the world.
