Youth Assisting Youth
Youth Assisting Youth grows the leaders of tomorrow through peer mentorship of at-risk and newcomer youth. Since 1976, YAY has paired volunteer young adult mentors aged 16-29 with youth aged 6-15 to engage in activities to develop mind, body, character and leadership skills. Our non-profit connects volunteers to meaningful mentorship experiences that profoundly impact the most vulnerable youth and their families in communities across Toronto and York Region.
