We help young single mothers provide a brighter future for themselves and their children.
While at our Centre, mothers receive a quality, accredited high school education through the M.F. McHugh Education Centre that features individualized programs, small classes and parenting courses.
Youville's dedicated team acts as positive role models for all students. A wide variety of support is provided to encourage young mothers to be independent, contributing members of society.
While the mothers are in school, their infants and toddlers are enrolled in the on-site day care. The children benefit from a quality early childhood learning program that addresses the social, emotional, cognitive, language and physical needs of each child. Nutritious meals and snacks are served daily.
Staff provide crisis intervention and counselling, advocacy, and referrals for current students, clients on Youville's waiting list, and former students. A young father's program is also delivered at Youville. It consists of a weekly support group, parenting support, individual counselling and a father/child drop in.
Through the Youville Centre, many young parents have obtained high school graduation diplomas. Several have gone on to college or university. Others have entered the world of work to enjoy rewarding and profitable employment.
