Youth Transitions Program (YTP) 

London & Sarnia 

Our Youth Transitions Program is a voluntary program offered free of charge to vulnerable youth ages 12-19. The program connects students with support they need for educational attainment, future success, and acquiring life skills. Participants can enter and leave the program when they are ready and can sign up through self-referral.

Program goals are to:  

  • Empower students to reach their fullest potential 
  • Strengthen and enhance student’s social networks and foster a sense of belonging 
  • Build student’s educational resiliency and aspirations 
  • Improve connectivity and access to technology 

Students can participate in all the activities or just one stream including: 

  • One-to-one support 
  • Life skills workshops (ie. budgeting, resume building) 
  • Mentorship 
  • Participation with the YMCA National Youth Advisory Council
