It has grown over the years and started various programs and projects that have made an enormous impact within the community. YOUCAN Youth Services has exposed thousands of youth across the Edmonton area to the benefits of conflict management and youth violence prevention and has seen many great successes.

YOUCAN Youth Services continues to connect with youth and the community in unique ways, which are fundamentally based on positive relationship building. As Edmontonians we all have a common goal of wanting to see our youth grow into contributing citizens, as well as see our city thrive and grow in positive ways. We take pride in the work that we do and look forward to meeting new youth and new partners.
