For more than 70 years, Youth Unlimited (Toronto YFC) has been passionate about seeing young people attain their full-life potential.
In the 1980s YU made the strategic decision to work primarily with youth coming from places vulnerable to poverty, violence, gang involvement, family breakdown, and spiritual impoverishment.
Today we are working in neighbourhoods all over the Greater Toronto Area with youth coming from diverse backgrounds and facing unique challenges. Our hope is that by cultivating relationships with caring adults who will mentor and cheer them on, they will be able to bring about positive change to our city – both now and in the future.
