We combine education, youth experience and training to create a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can be comfortable to open up and where we can listen.
In order to gain your trust, we know we need to gain your respect. We don’t want to tell you what to do. Tell you what to feel. We want to listen to you. Encourage you. Empower you to make change in your school and community.
Not only can we support you but we don’t want you leaving empty handed. That’s why you, and every participant in our program, receives our Pocket Resource List; a categorized listing of community agencies servicing the Ottawa region that have been youth approved.
At YouthNet, your safety is our first priority. Our facilitators are certified in ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) and receive ongoing training. Our safety protocols have been developed with the help of medical professionals. We have our own Social Worker that provides clinical back-up if ever required.
