About This Charity
For Youth Initiative is an organization that is committed to creating healthy communities by increasing life-chances of youth at-risk. We will do this through the provision of empowering programs and services that are youth-driven, inclusive and accessible.
About Our Charity
For Youth Initiative (FYI) serves youth aged 13-29 in the priority neighbourhood of Weston – Mount Dennis and surrounding communities of West-end Toronto. FYI began as a project in the former City of York to respond to the crucial and pressing issues of youth disengagement, violence, crime, poverty and alienation among marginalized and underserved youth in the area. Today, FYI offers structured recreational, culture & media arts, and female-specific programming to develop transferable life skills and leadership opportunities to the youth we serve.
FYI adheres closely to a by-youth for-youth model where young people are central players in the decision making process and hold leadership roles within the organization on the Board of Directors, as committee members, as volunteers and as staff. FYI aims to create healthy communities where youth are fully engaged and equal participants of society.
