Youth Now Connections
Youth Now Connections provides one-on-one support to youth and those responsible for their care. Youth are referred from police, probation, courts, child welfare, school boards, counselling services, hospitals, developmental services, and families. Our staff provide a combination of therapeutic supports, life skills training, and system navigation to assist young people in achieving their goals.
Our staff are trained extensively in a strength-based approach, motivational enhancement, and cognitive behavioural therapies. This is complemented with training in youth mental health, youth engagement strategies, program facilitation and case management. Staff are also trained annually in suicide prevention and crisis intervention.
Our extensive community and academic partnerships allow us to advocate effectively for our clients and integrate research into practice. We have a strong track record of success in helping youth access stable housing, complete their high school education and achieve their goals.
