BYTE is a ‘for youth, by youth’ organization, focused on empowering youth throughout the Yukon and Canada’s north. We travel to northern communities to deliver innovative programming, and host events in Whitehorse that foster creativity, culture and sport. Everything we do is about helping youth to develop confidence, skills, openness and a sense of belonging.
Unlocking potential through youth empowerment.
Northern Youth have developed their strengths and skills to live happy, healthy and meaningful lives. Youth are heard and respected in our community.
