Our Approach

Positive Youth Development

Raising the next generation

Positive Youth Development is …

an approach to intentionally structuring opportunities, supports and services for youth so that young people develop the skills they need to thrive and transition smoothly into adulthood.

Positive Youth Development deliberately seeks to increase the number of protective factors surrounding a young person that can ultimately translate into more positive social behaviours and reduced negative risk-taking behaviours.

Why Positive Youth Development?

Our mission is to provide leadership, knowledge and resources to develop capable young Canadians of positive character.
