About Us: Who We Are

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower youth and their families to take responsibility for their future development through programs and services that promote realistic goals and positive values. Our goal is to create opportunities for the youth for self improvement through sound education, community involvement, role model and employability training. and to implement prevention strategies designed to recognizing youth potentials and rewarding excellence in community service.

 

Our History

YNOT was borne out of a vision and need to fill the gap in grass-root youth services for the low-income and new immigrants’ families in the community. In 2006, Youth Now On Track was launched as program by the African Christian Network to address the challenges of youth in conflict with the law. From the determination to develop the program further, YNOT was incorporated and registered as a charitable organization in 2009.

Success Stories

  •  CHARLENE

    “My name is Charlene. I am a proud volunteer of Youth Now on Track Services (YNOT). As a new immigrant in Canada, this organization has introduced me to many valuable persons in society. I got the opportunity to work with children and adults from different cultures, class and race.

    This has been a hilarious and educational experience for me. Volunteerism can open doors to success which leads to happiness and I am honored to say I have earned this through YNOT by touching people lives; especially children."

  •  DALE

    "My name is Dale. Firstly, I want to thank Youth Now On Track Services (YNOT) for giving me the opportunity to share my experiences and life mistakes with the youth in the community through your programs and services.

    Sharing my life mistakes and lessons I learn from them have helped, and encouraged me to make better decision in life after spending many years in prison.

    It gives me joy sitting down with young people talking to them about my life experiences and supporting them to make better choices for themselves, especially when it comes to chosen friends, and listening to good advice."

  •  PAUL

    As an SSW student of Centennial College going for placement, I was nervous and anxious about what will be my experience but I was surprised that electing to do my placement at Youth Now on Track Services (YNOT) organization was the best decision I have ever made.

    They assisted me to develop my interpersonal skill in a practical way by allowing me to participate in their partnership meetings, visit and conducted me around various resources available in one of the Ontario’s court. I was given the opportunity to head a department called “Defining Who You Are” where I created program and activities which helped our clients to improve their self-esteem, focus and learning to work as a team.
