ABOUT OUR OTHER PROGRAMS?
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.

- Streetlight journeys with youth as they seek to make positive life choices, and supports them as they engage other community organizations.
