Youth Connect Program


The Youth Connect Program is a voluntary program for youth and provides support services to hard to serve youth who are absent from care of the Ministry of Social Services and in circumstances that endanger their health, safety and wellbeing.

Services include outreach, intensive case planning, weekly circles with identified resources, and pro-social activities and programming. Services focus on connecting with youth to assess their risks and needs, and develop a safety plan that meets their basic needs and provides interim safety. Addressing the root causes of running will be key in determining program success.
