Youth Counselling
Youth and Communications Coordinator (YCC)

The YCC provides individual supportive and informal counselling services to help youth ages 12 to 25 manage personal relationships, set goals, and make self-identified life decisions. We provide a safe space for youth to converse about personal and social issues including: bullying, family problems, education, and employment-related concerns.

The YCC is able to support youth in finding summer and part-time jobs, and/or volunteer work. Youth can get help preparing for job interviews, with resume/cover letter writing, and skills/career development.
