Youth Outreach Worker Program, London InterCommunity Health Centre

In various community settings in North East and East London, the Youth Outreach Workers (YOW) work together with youth, ages 12-21 (aprx), to build their resiliency and skills. Workers build trust with youth, families, and the community, and support them to find appropriate programs and services. The YOW team enhances and promotes the development of community based services and leadership opportunities for young people in the community. This program is LGBTQ+ friendly and offers advocacy and support for LGBTQ youth.
