Central Okanagan Service

Youth Services

Program Overview

The Youth Services program provides case management and service coordination to assist unhoused, high-risk youth aged 16-18 on an MCFD Youth Agreement who are disenfranchised from their families and other community supports to address barriers to independence. The program helps referred youth secure and maintain stable housing, increase their natural and community-based resources, improve life skills, achieve emotional stability and reduce harm. The program also aims to increase involvement in medical care, school, employment, training programs, prosocial activities and supports the youth to transition to adult services.

Youth Services also provides outreach support for sexually exploited youth by providing individual counselling and case management support to help decrease their involvement in and reduce the harms associated with sexual exploitation.
