Program Partners

Youth Futures is led by the City of Ottawa and administered in collaboration with BGC Ottawa and the Ottawa Community Housing Foundation. These organizations share a similar mandate to break down barriers and to alleviate the effects of poverty and inequities faced by the City’s most vulnerable residents.

The Youth Futures Program encourages a community-wide approach for supporting equity-deserving youth in Ottawa in their learning and career pursuits. We collaborate with and rely on the support of community leaders, government, local agencies, foundations, private sector donors, educational institutions and the business community to achieve our goals.
