Cornerstone Youth Centre

Since 1994, Cornerstone Youth Centre has transformed over 2000 youths’ lives in Calgary’s North-East area. Our impact is rooted in our ability to identify sets of skills, experiences, relationships, and behaviors that enable young people to develop into successful and contributing adults.

Every four months our registered youth complete an intensive professional survey through the SEARCH Institute designed to highlight the youths’ current needs, as well as the effectiveness of our program facilitation. These results guide the Centre’s program focus based on the survey’s feedback.

Our programs come in the form of crafts, activities, presentations, discussions and guest speakers with every program having a facilitated debrief afterwards to discuss the intended outcomes. We also engage external agencies/organizations to present, perform, engage, and include our youth.Normally our programs are operated with youth workers and practicum students trained in the fields of: Community Services and Child Development, Child and Youth Studies, Addictions and Community Support, Early Childhood Development, Kinesiology, Criminal Justice, and Social Work.
