YOUCAN Youth Services is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to empowering youth, so they have the knowledge, support and skills to remove themselves from harm’s way and move into economic independence. We assist young people in transitioning into employment or back into education. Our mission is to “engage young people to transform their lives by interrupting the cycle of harm.”
We believe in a 50/50 attitude and a RELENTLESS approach when working with young people: we will work very hard for them, but we expect them to work hard for themselves. Our end goals for the youth we work with are: stay in school, return to school, or secure and maintain employment. If these end goals are achieved, this will ensure economic independence in the future for the youth of our programs.
Daily our outreach staff are dealing with youth homelessness, transient lifestyles, school issues, lack of employment, court support, addictions, gang involvement, and mental health. Our staff is committed to building strong relationships with youth while advocating ways to successfully remove themselves from high-risk lifestyles. The work we do is crucial in the lives of the youth we work with.
