York Region Youth Outreach is on the front lines of our community's needs every day. All our locations across the York Region area offer support to 5,000+ clients annually, providing assistance and support to those who need it most. Please join us as we work to improve the lives of disadvantaged people throughout the York Region area.

With your tax-deductible donation, you extend a helping hand to new immigrants, youth, visible minority people and low-income family, helping them live up to their potential. The impact of your donation is enormous, changing the lives of and giving a future to those who need it most. Your contribution improves the economic capacity of our clients, and strengthens the entire community.

We extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to individuals, companies, and other organizations for their generous contributions to York Region Youth Outreach.

Thank you for caring!

York Outreach's volunteer program is built on the strengths of dedicated individuals from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.

Our volunteers generously contribute their time and energy to support York Outreach's mission, to enable our clients to participate more fully in Canadian society and to help them gain the skills they need to achieve self-determination and economic, social and political equality. Some of the activities enriched by the help of volunteers are:

Assisting clients with job search
Delivering workshops
Providing support and encouragement to clients
Planting and maintaining community gardens
Organizing celebrations, information fairs, and other special events

Our volunteers are a vital and integral part of York Outreach, who give of themselves and in return enrich their lives by developing new skills, enhancing current skills, and building new relationships.
