Youth Ottawa (formerly Child and Youth friendly Ottawa) is a not-for-profit charity that envisions an Ottawa where youth drive positive change. Our vision is based on our belief in youth. We support Ottawa youth by encouraging them to seize opportunities, harness their ideas and spark change.
Youth are the heart of our organization. We pride ourselves on encouraging young people to take on leadership roles while supported by adult mentors. Our programming is created and nurtured by young people in our community. It provides them with a platform and opportunity to engage, learn, experience and try new things while using their voice to reach out to their peers.
