Who we are
A place of connection and transformation, Youth Unlimited helps young people discover their potential. If they feel alone, marginalized, vulnerable or just need somewhere fun but safe to connect to we’re here to walk with them, help them learn life skills, support their growth as a person, and discover their potential. We do this through activities, arts, sports, camps, drop-in centres, youth groups and a myriad of other programs accessible throughout Greater Vancouver.
We’re a Christian organization but we’re not preachy, so we’re able to make genuine connections with young people and support them with the help they need – be it physical, mental, social, emotional or spiritual. We’re about genuine relationships. We don’t judge or tell. Instead, we listen and have the conversations youth want and need to have.
Our programming is relevant, fun, and most important – responsive to the needs of youth within their communities. It’s diverse and includes teen parent support groups, social justice initiatives, popular sports and activities, mentoring, food programs and counseling and much more. There’s something for everybody. We also appreciate the benefits of partnering with schools, community groups, associations, or working directly with families.
Our experienced staff is deeply committed and caring. Guided by values of compassion, integrity and servitude, they have an extraordinary ability to connect with youth and help them along life’s path. At Youth Unlimited, we passionately believe in the potential of each young person with whom we interact, and are dedicated to providing opportunities for them to lead what Jesus calls “lives to the full”.
As a non-profit, we solely rely on the generosity of donors who support our staff, as well as our operations. These are people who share our purpose of or are compelled to support our vision to transform a generation from the inside out.
