We cannot say that enough to our caring community for its support.
Your dollars, however big or small, fuel YouthLink’s effect on Scarborough, its youth and their families. So, again, we thank you for that support.
In addition to saying those words we want you to see our appreciation in how we are using your money. Rest assured that our Board of Directors and staff do all that is possible to stretch your financial support as far as possible. Every penny goes to helping more people in more ways, through our growing presence, programs and partnerships. You can see that for yourself in our latest annual report by clicking HERE.

A big shout out!

Firstly, to our Big Sisters. Your generous bequests and donations to the Big Sister Legacy Fund or directly to YouthLink continue to support the work you’ve helped keep going since 1914!
Secondly, to the many ticket purchasers and attendees at our BluesLink 2017 dinner/dance. The beat does go on, in our community and on the dance floor with this event returning on May 10, 2019.
Also, to the participants in our inaugural Drive for Youth to Thrive Charity Golf Classic in 2017. The search for golf glory never ends, with the return of this event on September 24, 2018.
Finally and appreciated just as much, to our thoughtful funders and sponsors. Your financial support along with your community-mindedness and high expectations encourage us to pursue our full potential.

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.
