A Youth Outreach Worker is there to help you pick up the pieces, repair the damage and access the appropriate supports when you need to.
A Youth Outreach Worker (YOW) works one-on-one with youth in a non clinical setting – that means we can go for a coffee or a walk, visit the parks or beaches or we can even just go for a drive. All of these activities provide private, confidential settings that doesn’t feel as clinical. Initially meetings are set up on a once a week basis until both the YOW and the client feel that goals have been met. At this point they may decide to meet bi-weekly or whatever is comfortable. Contact via text is also utilized in between visits when necessary.
Our mission is to enrich the community by empowering youth to make healthy choices and live up to the best that they can be.
