Youth Engagements



One Resource offers customized youth services and programs that create positive social change and continuous quality improvement for black youth in Ottawa, Canada’s Capital City. 


4 Years Old to 18 Years Old 

The One Resource Back-to-School Knapsack Drive aim is to ensure that our students (predominantly elementary and middle school attendees) will begin the school year with some of the same tools and supplies as their more fortunate peers.  

12 Years and Younger 

The One Resource Christmas Giving Program is a celebratory affair aimed at Newcomers to Canada (Kenya, Congo, Sudan, Uganda, Haiti, Rawanda). This activity is set in a party-style atmosphere where children are able to meet other children (who deal with similar situations), meet Santa and local representatives from supporting organizations (Ottawa Police), receive gifts and toys, eat party foods and play games. 

16 Years Old to Young Adult

One Resource mentors, coaches and promotes evidence-informed service planning, delivery and support to our more adolescent youth. We partner with the young person in the creation and delivery of our youth-engagement toolkits to ensure that the setting of goals, identification of positive social norms, and enhancement of their skillsets (social, employment and life-skills) will develop and transpire their individual temperaments into custom-made dynamic and meaningful opportunities.
