Youth Organizing to Understand Conflict and Advocate Non-Violence
YOUCAN Youth Services is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to empowering and building a culture of peace among today’s youth. We assist young people in developing the skills needed to move out of harms way, transition into employment or back into education, reduce youth violence and participate actively in youth issues. Our mission is to equip youth to engage and inspire others to peacefully resolve conflicts and develop healthy relationships in their communities.
We believe in a 50/50 attitude and approach when working with young people: we will work very hard for them, but we also expect them to work very hard for themselves. We want all the youth in our programs to leave with a sense of pride and ownership of the experience they had with us.
Our focus is to make sure that our youth have a life changing experience.
The work we do is crucial in the lives of the youth we work with. The difference that is made in their lives will stay with them always, and we may not see the fruits of our labour immediately, but rest assured, it will come. We will impact our world one youth at a time.
YOUCAN Youth Services' Youth Work Strategy is based on our four pillars of
All programs use this work strategy.
