Mandate: Allied Youth (AY) is a non-profit organization ‘for youth, by youth’. AY is for young people to come together and have fun while developing leadership skills, interpersonal skills, self-awareness, and community involvement. AY also aims for youth to increase their awareness of youth issues, and, as a result, to the best of their ability improve themselves and their communities around them through youth-led initiatives.
Target Population: Young people grades seven through twelve (Junior and Senior High School)
Highlights of Programs / Services Offered:
- In every A.Y group, the youth choose what they want to do. They get the opportunity to discover their own ways to develop into the leaders of today and tomorrow. This is done through youth-led initiatives – such as community or school events, volunteering, hosting fundraisers and education sessions on youth issues, etc.
- Besides getting the chance to enhance their community, and hang out with others in their community, A.Y. gives youth the opportunity to get out and explore somewhere new! AY hosts provincial events throughout the year where people from Posts and communities across the island come together.
- Youth get to meet members from across Newfoundland and Labrador when travelling to leadership camps and conferences!
