York Outreach
Welcome to York Outreach

York Region Youth Outreach Association operates within a “by youth, for youth” framework. This framework not only governs the day-to- day operation of the agency, but is considered a fundamental part of the vision and philosophy. It is our philosophy that youth facing exclusion, marginalization, and other forms of systemic oppression have the capacity and potential to best determine how to face their challenges and achieve their goals. YRYO believe that all youth have the skills, knowledge, and fundamental right to do so. It is our philosophy that youth facing exclusion, marginalization, and other forms of systemic oppression have the capacity and potential to best determine how to face their challenges and achieve their goals. We also believe that activities such as sports and recreation can serve as unique opportunities to connect further with new Canadians and that collaborating with nationally informed organizations is a best practice for improving services locally. Therefore, YRYO and our partners are committed to involving youth and new Canadians in meaningful ways.

This commitment goes beyond the provision of services to incorporate youth and families within the actual delivery of services and the organization’s ongoing development. Youth are endowed with the knowledge, tools, support, and transferable skills they need to actively participate in their schools and civic society; their families are enabled to become volunteers and local leaders; and together we foster healthier, welcoming communities where youth and new Canadians are fully engaged and equal participants.
