Youth & Community Impact

The YCAN program has a powerful impact on the communities with the support of our community partners but also on participating youth.



Our program has had a great impact on Youth. We asked youth if they felt confident in the below areas before and after their YCAN participation. The increase in the number of youth who felt confident across all skill sets shows the powerful impact of YCAN.
