Families in need are often faced with limited options for support and intervention.  Atlantic Youth is pleased to offer discrete, private and immediate support services for families in need all over Nova Scotia.  Our diverse team of Child and Youth Care Workers are available to support your family and child through a variety of means.  Every situation is unique, so please contact us for more information.



Youth in crisis need someone to talk to that will listen, understand their needs and help them be great. We can help achieve this by pairing your child and family with one of our most experienced Child and Youth Care Workers. We'll come to you, providing a customized, community based one-on-one support service in an arrangement and schedule that works for everyone. The Youth Mentorship Program provides individualized therapeutic services for youth aged 10-20 who are struggling and works toward improving their health, social development and quality of life. 

  • Stabilize your child's behaviour and actions in the context of a safe and trusting relationship.
  • Allow your child to develop short-term and long-term goals
  • See your child re-establish hope and direction in their life and their family.
  • Re-connect your child with school, hobbies and career plans.
