Concern For Youth
Making a difference with youth
Our Mission is Simple
Use a proactive approach to assist youth in making responsible decisions, identify the needs of youth, act as a liaison between youth and community programming, and raise the profile of youth issues in the community.
Battlefords Concern For Youth, Inc. has provided services and supports to children and youth in the Battlefords since 1989. Some of the services we provide include after-school snacks, outreach services, transportation to appointments, and mentorship services. Since September 2016, we’ve been providing programming for ages 13-18, which includes drop-in gym nights and cultural programming.
Our current Programs include Sports Night, Beading & Eating, Movie Nights, and our ongoing Nutrition and Mentorship Programs.
