LOVE believes youth are the key to ending youth violence in our communities. Our mission is to end the cycle of violence by giving young people opportunities to become leaders in their communities through positive engagement; skill based learning and self expression.
About Our Charity
LOVE's programs are designed to help youth overcome the challenge of violence in their lives and develop the skills to become local leaders against violence. In LOVE, young people who have been victims, witnesses or perpetrators of violence attend a series of weekly training sessions held in Vancouver, Toronto, Montréal and Halifax. They learn to use their personal experiences with gangs, drugs, weapons, racism, bullying, domestic violence and self-harm to help other youth make positive choices and together build safer communities.
LOVE was founded with a vision of what it takes to help a young person overcome adversity and become successful, and over the years, we have become an effective, results-oriented organization uniquely capable of making a difference in the lives of youth. At LOVE we believe that all young people can achieve positive change. We are relentlessly dedicated to young people, re-engaging them, helping them learn from past experiences.
