Reflecting greatness is a
simple yet difficult task.
No matter how big or small,
having an open mind
can move mountains.

The Youth Transitions to Adulthood (YTA) program works with  youth and young adults aged 15.5 to 24 to help them learn  necessary life skills.

All participants in the program have had long-term involvement with Child and Family Services and are referred to the program through a placement coordinator. Considerations are made to ensure potential clients are a fit and if so, are then accepted to the program and matched with a YTA staff who’s specifically chosen to meet their needs or to compliment their personality or cultural background.
 
Clients come to the YTA program through Children’s Services when they are unable to be in their regular home  environments. Often they have little or no parental support and can feel isolated and abandoned.
 
Staff work to build trust with their new clients, and then through weekly meetings, guide them step-by-step through learning strategies to help them manage their lives. Whether it’s how to open a bank account/budgeting, navigating the  court system, finding supports to manage mental health  and addiction, finding employment, an apartment, or even  budgeting for and shopping for groceries, the youth are  provided with personalized help and guidance geared to  their individual needs. With a plan created and led by the  client, self-sufficiency and confidence grow in a manner that  assists them to be able to navigate their world successfully. 
 

At any given time about 24-26 youth are involved in the YTA program and participants stay in contact with their case worker on average for 18 months. Clients are deemed ready to graduate from the program when they’ve shown marked improvement in managing  and navigating life tasks, and feel confident being self- sufficient.
