What is Youth Live?
Youth Live is a 28 week life and job skill development program
for individuals, aged 16 to 30, who have barriers to employment. Participants in our program participate in learning sessions and gain work experience by assisting with our business operations. Our main location is the Youth Live Enviro Depot at 947 Mitchell St in Halifax. Here participants learn customer service and other transferrable job skills that they can take to future jobs. Participants will strengthen life skills and explore options for the future while working in our businesses. Participants also earn money while they are participating in our program.
Who are we looking for?

- Youth who are not in school
- Youth who are facing barriers to gaining meaningful employment
"I liked the changing environment. It’s helped me become more adaptable. That was never something I did well in school or my personal life, I looked at it as negative. But now I have overcome that and see the benefit in being flexible. I came to a crossroads a couple times during the program but the extra support from staff helped me get through it." - Participant Graduate 2014
