Description

Youth Centres of Calgary (YCC) focuses on reducing the effects of poverty and addressing the real and urgent problems associated with youth growing up in Calgary’s tipping point communities. YCC concentrates specifically on youth who are economically and socially disadvantaged in grades 6 to 10 in communities where youth have insufficient access to healthy food, developmental opportunities and activities. The YCC model is to operate centres from a home-like environment that provide a free after-school “home away from home” for an average of 45 vulnerable youth every day, from a registration list of 150.
