The Youth Leadership Program is for youth who want to develop leadership skills through fun and challenging learning experiences. Participants help make a difference in their communities by organizing and taking part in special events and assisting staff with children's programs.

The Youth Advocate Program helps prevent youth aged 9-15 from engaging in anti-social and criminal behaviors.

If you’re between 16 and 24 years old, not in school and not working, you may be eligible to participate in the Youth Worx Program (Formally called the Youth Live Program). The Youth Worx Program offers 24 weeks of paid job and life skill building for youth with employment barriers.
