YouthLink In The Community

During the year that ended on March 31, 2017, over 8,000 youth, aged 12 to 24, and their families received service from our organization.

They came to us seeking a wide range of support for their emotional well-being, mental health, and intellectual development. In response, we delivered over 100,000 service encounters with them.

As a result, those youth are now developing their strengths, building their life skills, and going after more promising, exciting futures. Moreover, they connect more positively now with caring adults on what they still want to learn.
