About Us


YOUTH AT THE CENTRE

YOU provides a caring, active place for youth to build skills, confidence and independence. We help youth reach their potential through education, skills training and employment. We work with more than 22 partners to maximize opportunities for youth.

Each year YOU serves over 3,600 youth in London and Strathroy. If you are between 16 and 30 years of age, YOU can help. There is a wide range of services including health & dental care, housing, education, workshops, job search, and on-the-job skills training.

YOU has been a national leader in social enterprise since opening our first one in 1996. Now YOU operates five social enterprise businesses to offer on-the-job skills training to youth.

As a non-profit registered charity, YOU receives funding from all levels of government, national, regional and local businesses as well as foundations.
