John Howard Society of Toronto

Crossroads Youth Program (CYP)

In partnership with the National African Integration and Families Association (NAIFA) this program provides coordinated and integrated support services focused on preventing youth from engaging in criminal behaviours. CYP is an African-Caribbean youth centered program for those aged 16 years and older whom are at risk of becoming engaged in pro-criminal behaviours. Through individualized case management and group programming youth have access to positive social and personal development opportunities. Culturally specific programming is incorporated to reduce the over-representation of Toronto’s most marginalized youth. Support is also provided to families and communities that are impacted by youth violence.
