We Believe in You

For 50 years, NYSA has delivered skills programming, employment counselling, wage subsidies, career education and development, life-skills training and assistance, workshops and youth housing.

Focus on Youth

NYSA operates as a not-for-profit to provide services and programs to young people principally in the Nanaimo Regional District of British Columbia. We assist youth and young adults to reach their full potential by operating programs to:

  • support, promote and encourage youth to become productive citizens;
  • build self-esteem and confidence;
  • encourage the development of respectful relationships;
  • foster the self-care, safety and stability of at-risk youth;

Our services are mostly free and available to all youth within the age group of 15 to 30 years.
