Young Health Program

The Young Health Program (YHP) is a global, long-term community investment initiative, aimed at improving the health of vulnerable young people around the world — now and into the future. In Canada, we aim to improve the mental and emotional well-being of disconnected and vulnerable youth ages 10 to 19. We cannot do this alone. So we have partnered with three leading Canadian organizations and are actively working with them to address this issue.
