Halton Youth Collective (Children’s Aid Society of Halton)Employment & Economic Growth
Fundraising goal: $25,000
When a teen or young adult has experienced abuse or neglect and been placed in foster care, they are already vulnerable. Making the transition to adulthood is particularly tough for these youth, and it’s even tougher today with the pandemic and rising inflation.
A number of community organizations in Halton Region have come together to help support youth through the Halton Youth Collective Program, helping youth access a variety of resources such as mental health services, job preparation, housing assistance and applying for post-secondary education. An important part of this unique program is being matched with a trained mentor who can help guide the youth in navigating the system and forging a positive future.
