The Victoria Youth Empowerment Society strives to provide a continuum of care that empowers positive choices in the lives of multiple-barrier youth by providing accessible, innovative and proactive programs.

These programs are delivered free of cost to the youth and families of Greater Victoria. We’re here to support all youth in our community to transition to healthy lives and make positive life choice. We strive to meet the needs of youth by working in partnership with families and the community to deliver a safe and supportive environment for at–risk youth.

As a multi-service agency, we offer:

    • A safe place off the streets for at-risk and/or homeless youth
    • A flexible drop-in component  available beyond regular business hours with counsellors who are available without appointments.
    • A welcoming, non-judgmental place for youth with mistrust and anxiety issues to access services.
    • Specialized support for youth aging out of government care
    • Life skills and job training services
    • Detox support in a residential, non-medical setting
    • Early intervention through family counselling, mediation and outreach support
    • An emergency shelter for youth with no safe place to go

Thank you to Our Supporters
