We’re here to help, and we help hundreds of youth every month.
I’m happy with how far I got in just one week.
thanks a bunch for being there when i was down on my luck
I really liked how the staff were supportive and helpful, but also gave me space to do as I felt needed to do.
This place really helped me know I can change. Everyone was super supportive and friendly and made my stay good.
I spent the day crying alone under the Burrard Bridge. Then I came here and some guys made me laugh and you fed me this beautiful dinner. Thank you for doing that.
A really good supportive environment with excellent staff who seem to really care.
Street Youth Job Action gave me the confidence to enter the workforce after having lived on and off the streets for years.
You give people like me, who never had a chance, a way to start again...
10 would recommend, these people do whatever they can to make you feel comfortabl e, safe, secure. make sure you're housed, clothed, fed. as well as educated.
The staff were open-minded about my gender identity.
