About Central Alberta Youth Unlimited

Central Alberta Youth Unlimited (CAYU) is an organization built on the philosophy of relationship based programming. With this in mind, all of the supports, programs and services we offer are built on the development of strong, healthy relationships between our staff and the young people we serve. This allows the hope and potential of each person we walk along side to be seen to the fullest extent. Whether our staff are mentoring students in a high school, spending time with youth at a drop in centre, taking youth on a service trip or supporting youth through pregnancy and parenthood, you will find that at CAYU, our staff ARE our program. Through the support of Youth Engagement, partners are helping fund our organization's strongest asset- our staff.
