Current donation opportunities include:

The Lights-On Fund – Our general operating fund is the least exciting but the most important. We do our part in keeping our costs as low as possible, but the ongoing expenses of keeping, maintaining, and managing the youth centre is our largest ongoing need. The Lights-On Fund is what allows us to be able to welcome youth through over 500 visits each month. Your generosity is the key to keeping our programming available to youth in our community. If you wish to donate to The Lights On Fund, please click HERE.

Direct Impact Fund– This particular pocket of funding goes directly to youth needs on an as-needed basis. These needs include items like food, post-secondary application fees, hygiene products, school supplies, rent rescues, and training fees. If you wish to donate to the Direct Impact Fund, please click HERE.

Youth Sponsorships – Want to provide a young person with the opportunity to do something fun and empowering? Your sponsorship will allow them to do just that. Many of our youth have hardly left the confines of the city due to transportation issues. By sponsoring them on one of our upcoming activities, you’ll be broadening their horizons and providing them with life-giving memories to hold on to no matter what happens afterwards.
