VNS Inc. believes that our programs will help assist high-risk youth in Durham Region to stay off the streets, out of trouble and to become more active in their community. We teach them valuable lessons of teamwork, communication, and introduce them to other individuals within their community. We strive to be a positive influence in the lives of the youth involved in our programs to strengthen local communities. Furthermore, we are also trying to encourage youth of ethnic and racial minorities to rise above the common stereotypes that are used to categorized them. By providing our services, it allows the youth and children to recognize themselves as worthy citizens at this tender age which will influence how they view themselves within society and try to lead promising lives.
