Young Adult Services (YAS)
This program is for young adults aged 16-25 years of age who struggle with mental health concerns and/or addictions, emotional issues or behavioural issue.
Orientation: Every week on Wednesdays from 11:30am – 12:00pm, YAS offers an Orientation to Young Adult Services. This provides young adults with a chance to learn about the group opportunities, evaluate their current goals, and determine what programming might be the best fit for them. Please arrive a few minutes early.
How to access programs: Young adults can sign-up by attending the orientation to young adult services on Wednesdays, or by coming to a drop-in group, or by filling out the attached sign-up form. Young adults may choose to call or text the contact person for more information or support to come to their first program. Young Adults who sign-up by filling out the form will be contacted by a staff who can support them through any challenges they may have in attending the program (ie transportation, anxiety, etc).
The Community Health Empowerment & Wellness (C.H.E.W) offers frontline service provisions, resources, and education for LGBTQ2SA+ youth and young adults aged 14-29 who are facing a variety of barriers. These barriers may include mental health, violence, poverty, homelessness, substance use, sexual health, sexual exploitation/sex work, and others. We provide a safe place for youth to get basic needs, get off the street, and find hope. chewprojectyeg.org
