Scarborough Youth Program

The Youth Program at the Scarborough Child and Family Life Centre  provides support and advocacy in the areas of housing, education and employment for Aboriginal youth ages sixteen to twenty-nine. While many of our clients have been involved with our Child Welfare services, some are Aboriginal youth who have recently arrived in Toronto. All are seeking opportunities, supports and stability.
