The HYPE (Healthy Youth Preventative Education) Program is a evidence based program that targets the prevention of violence through the promotion of positive, healthy relationships.

The HYPE program offers small group sessions that promote healthy relationships and target a wide range of abusive and violent behaviours, high risk sexual behavior and addictions among adolescents.

This program is for youth aged 12-25 and is available at no cost. The HYPE Program is supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and will be delivered in partnership with 360°kids.

Through this program, youth will be empowered to engage in healthier relationships and build social and emotional strengths to develop into successful, contributing adults.
