The What:
Streetlight exists to be a consistent resource meeting the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of at-risk youth in London. The Streetlight program  creates safe spaces for at-risk youth to find community (mobile youth centre, YFC London, churches, coffee shops).  These safe spaces are staffed by a team of dedicated outreach workers, placement students, and volunteers. Our goal is to provide a safe and consistent place for at-risk youth (16-25 years) to come to receive food, basic needs, support, advocacy, and a sense of community.

The When and Where:
Streetlight Cafe – 1-2 PM @ Williams (578 Richmond Street)

Streetlight Connect – 3-5 PM @ The Hub (254 Adelaide Street S)

Streetlight Outreach – 7-9 PM @ First Baptist Church (568 Richmond Street)

  • Youth deserve a safe space to experience consistent and compassionate relationships.
  • A lack of community and social/emotional support is the largest barrier faced by youth.
  • Streetlight provides a safe and consistent place for at-risk youth (16-25 years) to come to receive food, basic needs, support, and a sense of community.
  • Streetlight supports youth as they engage other community agencies for help with housing stability, mental health and wellness, addictions, legal issues, parenting support, and healthy relationships.
  • Streetlight journeys with youth as they seek to make positive life choices, and supports them as they engage other community organizations.
  • Streetlight intentionally promotes healthy relationships and positive support networks to increase the social and emotional wealth of our youth.
  • We partner with churches, social service agencies, community members, and businesses in order to empower, support, and advocate for youth.
