Open since 1999, Broadway Youth Resource Centre (BYRC) is an integrated one-stop centre that provides a wide range of social, health, education, employment and life skills services to homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 12 and 24.

At the core of BYRC is the Resource Room, which is accessible to everyone. It provides an opportunity for staff to initiate dialogue with walk-in and transient youth, and to refer them to other programs and services at BYRC.  More than 60 youth access services each day and for special events or workshops, that figure can rise to 100 youth a day. The youth population is ethno-culturally diverse and over 60% are Aboriginal.

This inclusive, “All Nations” innovative multi-agency model provides a continuum of integrated community-based social and health services to at-risk youth in a safe, accessible storefront location. Services are delivered by several not-for-profit agencies, a community college, a university and three levels of government.   The purpose of this innovative multi-agency model is to provide a seamless continuum of integrated community-based social and health services to at-risk youth and the overall objective of the Centre is to improve the health and well being of at-risk youth.
