About Us

Our mission: To assist, support and refer young people in need. To advocate for youth in partnership with our communities.

Connect Youth was initiated as a result of a community focus group that involved youth, following the suicide of one of their peers in June 2001. Our goals are to Connect Youth with the appropriate services and programs, from a social development perspective, and to develop programs necessary in partnership with community agencies. These services and programs seek to help youth adjust through difficult periods in their lives, to enable them to reach their full potential and be productive adults in their communities.
