Our Relentless Approach
At YOUCAN Youth Services we are RELENTLESS in all aspects of our work. We are RELENTLESS with our youth and for our youth. If we can't find them, we will track them down. If they need help in the community, we will advocate for them. We are determined to support our youth, until they are determined to support themselves.
We acknowledge Treaty 6 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta, Regions 2, 3 and 4 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
Your Support. Their Success.
The youth we work with have hopes and dreams. They want to live lives that they can be proud of. They want to contribute to our community. They want to have the same opportunities that we have. YOUCAN Youth Services relies upon the support of the community to help youth realize those hopes and dreams. Your support helps with things like food, work clothes, and bus passes to name a few. These “little things” make a huge difference assisting youth as they move out of harms way and start moving towards economic independence. Can you help a YOUCAN Youth Services youth today?
