Youth Program 14-18

Program for youth and young adults
14-18 years old

A program for youth and young adults started in August 2015. This program aims to fill the gap through resources and opportunities organized for individuals in this age group who live in the Orléans-Cumberland and adjacent areas. The program gives them the opportunity to actively participate in community life and allows them to develop components of self-empowerment by participating in activities and workshops.

The program worker will coordinate activities that will be, for the most part, organized by and for youth: –  facilitating discussion and consultation round-tables –  identifying needs and implementation of specific projects –  offering support services and workshops on various topics like self-esteem, positive body image, bullying, etc. –  coordinating and implementing activities to engage youth in the community in identifying issues or initiatives that they would like to explore

For the mental health intervention component, and support groups and workshops, the activities will be developed and offered according to the relevant realities identified by youth and young adults living in eastern Ottawa.


For all of the activities, you must complete the Online Registration Form
