YOUCAN Youth Services is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to assisting youth so they have the knowledge, support and skills to remove themselves from harm's way.
We assist young people in transitioning into employment or back into education, reducing youth violence. We believe in a 50/50 attitude and approach when working with youth; we will work very hard for them, but we expect them to work very hard for themselves.
On a daily basis our outreach staff are dealing with youth homelessness, transient lifestyles, school issues, lack of employment, court support and criminality, addictions, gang involvement, and mental health. Our staff are committed to building strong relationships with youth while advocating ways to successfully navigate the complexity of high risk lifestyles.
The work we do is crucial in the lives of the youth we work with. We will impact the Edmonton community one youth at a time.
