Youth One is far from the norm, you have to check it out!  Everything we offer is specifically designed for youth, ages 14-18.  In a no pressure atmosphere you can hang out, play pool,  grab a bite to eat, play guitar, meet new people, listen to music, play ping pong, relax on a couch in our brand new coffee shop, skate our mini pipe,  check your email, work on homework and much much more.   Need assistance with anything?  Our outreach team would love to help, whatever the issue or problem! Our connections centre is open Monday – Friday from 10-6 P.M.  We have 4  full time staff dedicated to providing you with a safe, inclusive, positive and fun place to be. Oh and did we mention everything is Free? So what are you waiting for? See you soon!

Youth One is a new, grassroots youth organization that focuses on developing and delivering unique youth programs locally, and nationally. Local programs include a free after school drop in, resource centre, daily suppers, youth leadership development, summer trips, skateboard clubs and more.   Nationally, Youth One takes their programming on the road to communities, conferences, schools and clubs, by delivering affordable day programs that include engaging youth activities and speaking sessions.  Youth One is focussed on the basic social needs and welfare of youth, we are driven by our passion and faith, and are guided by the principles of Love, Justice and Mercy.

Our Story

When you see a need you meet it.  Youth One is doing exactly that.  We have noticed some crucial gaps in communities across Canada regarding youth, and we offer programs and services to help address those gaps.  In March of 2014 a group of individuals got together and drew up a plan to give youth the ultimate space to hang out, a space where they can feel safe, a space to get assistance, and a space to develop more healthy lifestyles.  In May of 2014 we partnered with a local charitable Organization called Bridges of Hope International, which gave us the much needed traction to get things rolling. We have a passion for youth, and everything we do revolves around giving youth what they deserve and need.

New Partnership

We had some amazing friends come visit this morning! We are stoked to have a new business partner/supporter come on board with Youth One !! We have been getting to know Epic Roofing & Exteriors Ltd. – Lethbridge over the last few weeks, and their commitment to supporting young people in Lethbridge is astounding. From now on Epic will be donating $100 for every roof they complete! We love our community. Welcome Epic (Jason, Karen and crew), and thank you for your commitment to Youth One. Welcome to our team!


Save the Date! 2nd Annual Black Tie Fundraiser! April 23rd

Yes, it is still 4 months away, but we have already started planning this much anticipated event.  Last year was amazing, and this year we hope to make it even better.  Mark the weekend down on your calendar, tattoo it on your arm, make a voice recording, set an alarm, tell all your friends.  We cant wait!


Christmas is here!

Well we have not had too much snow yet, but we definitely feel the Christmas mood popping up rapidly! We are excited about this time and have plenty planned for this season, giving everyone more opportunity to grow and challenge themselves.  Youth One received an early Christmas gift as we found out we will be receiving funding to complete a new rock climbing wall at our Lethbridge site! So pumped!
