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, and addictions among adolescents.

This program is for youth aged 11-25 and is available at no cost. The HYPE Program is supported by the Regional Municipality of York and Ontario Trillium Foundation.

Through this program, youth will be equipped to engage in healthier relationships and build social and emotional strengths.
