Youth supporting youth

The Drop In Centre is focused on building healthy and positive relationships between youth. The following is an example of the success of those efforts and how the youth support each other outside of the Centre

"Staff at the Drop In centre have recently been informed that one of the older youth (TD) has been walking one of the younger youth (JG) home after the Centre closes for the night. JG has had some issues with bullying on his walk home and was not feeling safe. TD took it upon himself to provide some safety and peace of mind for JG even though he lives in the opposite direction and the trip adds an extra 6 km to his walk home, TD has continued with this routine for over a month now and has never mentioned this arrangement to staff or expected any compensation"
