Actua’s At-risk youth program (also known as Go Where Kids Are) is a customized delivery model to engage new Canadians, at-risk youth, and other youth populations facing socio-economic challenges.
The Go Where Kids Are program recognizes that many youth do not have the opportunity to attend a STEM outreach program, even if the program is offered at no cost. In order to engage these hard to reach youth, Actua and our network members partner with youth serving organizations such as Family Resource Centres, immigrant community organizations, Boys and Girls Clubs, YM/YWCAs, and others who already have these youth engaged. Through this program the Actua network annually engages over 30,000 underrepresented and underprivileged youth.
Our commitment is to provide sustained programming in these locations, returning each year to strengthen the impact of the programming on the youth we reach.
