New website connects Yukon youth to services and funds

WHITEHORSE – Yukon youth and people who work with youth can now connect to information about services, programs, funds, activities and events through the Youth Directory.

The Youth Directory, now available at www.youth.gov.yk.ca, makes information easily accessible and includes detailed listings of funds, as well as services and programs.

“There are many opportunities for Yukon youth. The Youth Directorate wants to make it easier for them of access information and opportunities from one place,” Premier Dennis Fentie said. “This site is one more tool to support youth as they become involved in their communities.”

The Youth Directorate created the website so users can browse through programs and services that are organized into categories such as arts and culture, employment and Yukon communities. Funding sources are also listed in searchable categories.

Users can also access up-to-date information about programs and events in Yukon communities by browsing through community calendars or the list of programs and services.
