Nanaimo Youth Services Association is a community based, not for profit, charitable society. We have provided a range of residential and non-residential services to vulnerable youth in the Nanaimo Regional District since our incorporation in 1969. Since that time, the Association has grown into being a multi-purpose but singularly integrated organization serving under the governance of our volunteer board of directors who represent and are recruited from a broad cross-section of our community.

Serving Youth

Our Programs

An overriding purpose of NYSA services is to provide social support to vulnerable, ‘at risk’ youth for the challenges they face on a day to day basis. Every program service offered is free and incorporates an effective element of basic life skills, practical employment readiness training and health education features that assist in equipping youth to participate and be fully included in the life of community.

Direct services to ‘at risk youth’ has become more sophisticated over time due to new research and evidence carried out on youth as a Population Health group from a Resilience and ‘Successful Transitions to Adulthood’, literature perspective.

NYSA’s ‘Philosophy of Care’ adheres to the notions that:

  • If it would not be good enough for our own children, why would we offer it to other people’s children;
  • We will not offer services to youth that promote or result in Learned Dependency;
  • The best social program and long-term income security for youth in a market-based society is a meaningful job.
