What makes us so different?
Youth One is taking a growing problem and addressing it with a very simple approach. Today's youth have SO much potential, but many of them don't have a dedicated community to help them fully live it out. That's why Youth One provides a life-changing centre where youth can find belonging and support to become their best.
We know youth don't want to just survive in life. They want to become thriving and unstoppable young adults filled with purpose and hope! Who wouldn't want that? To reach this, youth need a community where they feel a sense of belonging and support to live out their best.
Here's the HUGE problem. Many youth lack a good support system in their lives that gives them that extra push to reach their full potential. This leaves youth feeling stuck, fearful for the future, or even helpless. No Youth should have to figure out life alone or go without support. We understand how hard it is to find a community of your own where people believe in you and your future. This is why we created a 100% dedicate space that has seen over 800 youth in the last 4 years call their second home.
So what does it look like? Here's how it all works with a new youth. 1. Look up - They look up what events we offer and pick one that they suits them most. 2. Show up - They come as they are to the event they want to attend. 3. Meet up - As soon as they arrive they get greeted by one of our friendly staff, and shown around the space. 4. After a few weeks of getting familiar with the space, we start to give the youth opportunities to grow, get plugged in and become a bigger part of the family. Thats it! They look up, show up, meet up, and join up. Our goal is the youth spend their middle school and high school years with us. This gets them plugged in to a supportive and loving community where they can become their best.
