Head & Hands envisions a society where all youth are participants and are inspired by the endless possibilities available to them.
Our mission is to work with youth to facilitate their empowerment and to promote their physical and mental health. Through education, intervention and referral, and in collaboration with other organizations, we provide medical, social and legal services and recreational activities to youth of diverse communities, free of charge. We also work with youth to help them define and take their place in their communities and society. Our approach is preventative, inclusive, holistic, and harm-reductive. We actively work to be accessible to marginalized youth.
