Swing with a purpose!

Join in the fun of raising funds for YouthLink programs that serve the mental health and emotional wellbeing of our youth, their famlies and our community.

We invite you to our 2nd annual  charity golf classic for the Hilda Burns Trophy

The mental health and emotional wellbeing of hundreds of people, and to the overall quality of life in our community, all benefit from your decision to participate in this fun-filled event!

Whether you golf and dine, or simply dine, you’ll have the chance to introduce yourself to new people, relax with friends, and reward yourself or your guests with time well spent.

All of it will go to our growing mix of in-demand services in counselling, supportive housing, educational advancement, youth outreach and public engagement.

Our major focus this fall will be the launch of our Warden Avenue transitional home and emergency shelter for homeless youth, the only one of its kind from Victoria Park Avenue to Durham region.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our What’s Up Walk-In services are now being offered online through video-conferencing. We know this is a stressful time for everyone, and we want you to be able to continue to access our counsellors and clinicians in a safe and secure way so we are now offering you online video-conferencing counselling and support.


Our E-Counselling What’s Up Walk-In service will be open Monday – Friday until further notice. If you would be interested in booking one of our daily video-conferencing appointments for a counselling or support session with a clinician, call 416-967-1773 extension 222 and you will be connected to our Intake department. E-Counselling and support is also available for many of our other programs. Intake staff can provide you with more information if you are interested.


Although many of our staff are temporarily working off-site, all of our housing and residential programs continue to operate as usual.
