Halton Youth Collective Program (HYCP)

What is the HYCP?

The HYCP operates as a community collective of youth transitioning from care, funders and social service agencies. It is a resource hub for young people and children’s aid society workers to address needs/barriers as they arise for youth in achieving their satisfaction in education, employment and training.

All youth are provided the opportunity to work with an adult mentor to support them in meeting their goals. This mentor will continue with the youth long term. 

The Halton Children’s Aid Society (Halton CAS) is the lead agency for service delivery and the primary connection with the program’s youth. The HYCP includes a team of 25 diverse, youth-serving agencies representing a range of social services from housing to education and mental health to employment and training.

The HYCP is a collaborative approach to problem solving and decision-making, grounded in data. The youth voice plays a key planning, implementation and execution role to address the issues confronting youth as they transition from care.
