HERE'S WHAT WE DO IN CALGARY: 

Campus Life

Campus Life is a school-based outreach program that volunteers with school athletic teams, carries out student team-building rallies, and is involved in other activities on and off school campuses. Staff and volunteers mentor youth through sport by challenging and encouraging them to reach their full potential, supporting them in their development, teaching them life skills, and instilling positive values.
 

Gym Blast. 

Gym Blast is a high energy, jam-packed, fun-filled, 1 ½- 2 hour, morning or afternoon motivational assembly full of games, geared for students from grades 7-12. Gym Blast promotes school spirit, team work and group effort. 
 

StreetLight

Our StreetLight program aims to reach youth who are living on the streets or who are involved in human trafficking through mobile drop-in centres in Bowness and in the downtown core, as well as through two 24/7 crisis lines. The program provides a safe environment for these vulnerable youth and facilitates mentorship relationships to help them make positive life changes.

 

Youth Guidance

Our Youth Guidance program provides at-risk and minority youth with mentorship and relational support through facilitating sports events and through a partnership with an open custody home in Bowness. This program helps youth to develop positive values, relational skills, and leadership capabilities.
 

Worth Auto

Worth Auto is an employment-training program in the form of an automotive repair shop for disadvantaged and troubled youth. Many of these youth lack self-worth and have rarely known accomplishment, so Worth Unlimited teaches them practical and valuable skills while inspiring their sense of identity.

 

HERE'S WHAT WE DO AROUND CALGARY: 

In addition, Youth Unlimited operates two satellite programs: a community youth drop-in centre in Carstairs and an outreach program focused on mentoring youth in Bow Valley. Both satellite programs work in their community schools and through after school activities to intentionally build healthy and supportive relationships with youth.

 

Bow Valley.

Youth Unlimited operates a satellite program that provides mentorship for youth in Bow Valley through TaeKwonDo training, wilderness pursuits, a community prayer group, and individually tailored one-on-one mentorship. This program supports First Nations students as well as youth from low to average income families, providing them with the developmental opportunities and adult encouragement that they need to develop their potential and recognize their unique value.

 

Carstairs.

In Carstairs, Youth Unlimited operates a youth drop in centre called CRASH. It's geared to community kids and creates a safe space for youth to come and build community and healthy relationships with Christian mentors. 

 

FURTHERMORE: 

With an emphasis on how one’s personal faith is a significant source of hope and coping, our programs/services are:

Holistic
Relational
Culturally sensitive
Educationally age-appropriate and
Caring long-term

Our multifaceted approach utilizes “client-centered,” “family-systems,” “community development,” and “crime prevention through social development” forms of intervention.

We engage each community through a process of assessment, planning, implementation, evaluation, consultation & networking of key stakeholders.

This approach emphasizes cultural diversity through “Anti-discrimination, Access & Equality” practices, strategic city-wide alliances and partnerships and the optimization of local community expertise, human and material resources.

Youth Unlimited has exciting programs spread throughout the Greater Calgary area and we invite you to partner with us in reaching youth for Christ by volunteering, joining our staff team, financial partnership and with your prayers.
