YNOT Board of Directors
Non-profit organizations should periodically review the size and membership of their board to ensure they are conducive for effective decision-making. If a board is too large, its members may lose a sense of personal accountability for decision-making, yet if the board is too small, board members may be stretched too thin. There is no “one size fits all”. The answer is found through examining the board responsibilities.
Some boards form committees to handle the different areas of work under its responsibility. When a committee is formed it is given a degree of responsibility to review information, make recommendations and decisions, and bring back the information to the full board for discussion and approval.

A Message from The Board
Today we are living in a time of unprecedented uncertainty which can cause hopelessness. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the world –that no one is safe until everyone is safe.
The challenge we face today is different in scope and character from those we have faced before.
We are now each being forced to rethink how we live and work, as the realities we have took for granted have changed.
Youth Now on Track Services (YNOT) is here to make a difference by encouraging and providing support to our youth, especially during these trying times. We’re all in this together - and we’ll get through it, only by acting with compassion, showing acts of humanity, and inspiring hope, can we overcome the mental, social, and economic impacts of the pandemic.
As a community/grass root organization Youth Now On Track Services has supported over 400 families during this unprecedented time in our history, through our community emergency support project, Back to School Stress Relief and Mental Health programs for our youth.
This major achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the explicit support of the community. We use this opportunity to thank everyone graciously for your donations and support.
Our mandate is to stand with our youth until they achieve their life purpose and destiny, develop positive skills to reduce negative behaviors, and be a strong supporting member of the family/community, especially the marginalized and racialized communities through our programs and services. We depend on your support to achieve this laudable mandate, “it takes a community to raise a child”, and an hour volunteer can make a great difference.
Finally, we encourage you to go and get your vaccination if you have not.
All of us are affected, but the burdens are falling most heavily on those least able to carry them, but difficult times bring out the best in people.
Keep strong, stay well.
