Empowering Leaders of Tomorrow



 

Our Purpose

Youth Achieving Success was founded in response to the growing youth crime rate in the Lower Mainland. Vancouver and certain neighboring communities have some of the highest youth crime rates in all of Canada. Due to a lack of resources available to public school students, many high schoolers in the Lower Mainland find it difficult to identify their career interests. Youth Achieving Success addresses this issue by providing a platform for students to discover their career potential and develop professional connections with industry leaders.



 

Since its founding, YAS has impacted over 600 students and aspires to help thousands more.
