Vision

Empowered youth, family, community.

Mission

To engage, educate, and inspire youth and families to lead healthy lives.



Rainbow Youth Centre provides a comprehensive program of activities and services aimed at helping young people prepare for the transition from adolescence to a healthy and productive independ­ent adult lifestyle.     

In operation since 1982, Rainbow works with young people aged 11-19 years in a variety of individual and group support, skill development, educational, recreational and direct service programs. Rainbow is also working with young adults 20-25 in specific programs. 

Youth require skills, appreciation of themselves and a sense of responsibility for their actions.  At Rainbow, we provide opportunities for youth to be appreciated in the process of acquiring skills, and as well to take active responsible roles at the Centre. At Rainbow, we work to create opportunities for youth to recognize their self-worth.
