YNOT focuses on crime prevention and justice by advocating for the youth, providing intervention and prevention strategies to divert the youth away from the dangers of the streets. We address youth violence and offer a holistic service approach including counselling and mediation. Individual programs are designed to our client’s specific needs. We encourage them to share their difficulties through personal, private and confidential interviews.
We have experience working with youth who have dropped out of school, those engaged in gang activities and those living in a dysfunctional family setting. Our objectives are to help each youth learn to develop the skills needed to manage anger and diffuse negative situations.
