In April, Peter Embleton, Executive Director of the Youville Centre, spoke to CCSAC about the Centre’s varied programs to support young mothers and their children. Founded in 1985, the Centre provides a fully accredited secondary school, a licensed child development program and parenting programs, as well as therapy and counselling. These programs and services help young moms to work toward personal, academic and parenting goals in order to create a brighter future for themselves and their children.
