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.

We go beyond the deep waters

We are big thinking, curiosity embracing, pushing the status quo risk takers.

We always bring our “B” game

Bringing our BEST.  Not allowing good to get in the way of what could be great.

We live and die by the tribe

Working as a unit, helping wherever we can, believing the best about each other.

Asking the question daily, “Am I advancing the core mission, vision and values of Youth One?”

Why? If our alignment is off, our destination changes.
