For Youth Initiative is a non-profit organization that has served, inspired and advocated for thousands of teens and young adults in York South-Weston since 1995. Our multi-service agency provides year-round programs and services to local youth to meet their needs and empower them to reach their full potential.
Every young person’s journey is unique and their needs are too. Our case management model meets young people where they are and helps them get to where they want to be. Our programs and services are designed to support youth to graduate high school, enroll in post-secondary education, gain employment and prepare for adulthood.
