Providing youth with one to one support with education (high school and post secondary) and apprenticeship programs, housing, employment, informal counselling, life skills workshops, emergency food and clothing bank.
Youth who are involved with child protection services have significantly lower outcomes in comparison to their peers
At StepStones, we believe that youth have the intrinsic abilities necessary to accomplish what they set out to achieve and that they can, with support, achieve their goals. Our role is to support them in becoming who they are and who they want to be. We support youth who have a history of trauma, are economically disadvantaged and/or are living in or transitioning out of foster group home situations.
