Making a difference – that is what we are doing at Youth Now on Track Services. YNOT began with a willingness to serve the community and to advocate for challenged youth and their families.
YNOT provides prevention and intervention strategies to divert youth away from dangers of the streets and empower them to become productive members of society. We help them to set and achieve their goals. We address youth violence and offer a holistic service approach including counselling, mediation and recreational activities to address crime prevention. We help them back into school; empower them to overcome their personal challenges and to reach their full potential.
We the board members of YNOT are in awe of everything that our donor and volunteers have helped to achieve so far. Thanks to you, we have been providing life-changing support – through information, peer support, and advocacy, we have made a significant difference to the Youth of York West.
Through our community outreach activities we have made new community partnerships, increased our clientele and achieved many things. With your continued commitment YNOT will be able to increase our services and reach out to even more youth in our community.
On behalf of the board, the staff, our volunteers and supporters we look forward to an exciting upcoming year ahead. Thank you for believing in us and may you continue to give so generously of your time and your donations.
As an organization, YNOT is guided by the following principles:
ADVOCACY – We are committed to the fair and equitable treatment of our young people in schools, community and the justice system.
PURPOSEFULLNESS – We focus on troubled youth who are in conflict with the law, showing signs of gang activity and are having trouble with school because of a learning challenge.
DIVERSITY – We recognize, support and respect differences in all aspects of our programs and services irrespective of differences in our religious inclination, faith, race or gender.
RESPECT – YNOT's Youth programs and services respect each individual’s potential, abilities, values and opinions.
COLLABORATION – We strongly believe that children are our future and that it takes a community to raise a child. We work closely with other community organizations, agencies and individuals that provide services to our youth.
