In addition to welcoming young people to the Walgwan Center, we also offer services outside the center. An Outpatient/aftercare worker is engaged with frontline workers at the community level, youth and families to ensure a continuum of care and wellness. We can also coordinate prevention activities in the primary and secondary schools of the surrounding communities upon request. A new service under development is virtual individual and group consultation service and can refer clients to other complementary resources, as needed.

We are committed to respecting our youth by acknowledging and embracing their cultural, spiritual, linguistic or physical differences. We respect all aspects of the dignity and the integrity of each individual. We will act with compassion and empathy no matter how the youth react when encountering challenges. We will not judge them so that they do not feel disgraced or embarrassed.

Our approach will teach them to be compassionate towards themselves and other people. We encourage youth and the members of their families to participate in everything we do, while respecting their willingness and ability to do so. We encourage them to participate in the conception, planning, we offer a safe environment to our clients where they can explore and reinforce their emotional, spiritual, mental and physical health. They will have all the support an understanding they require for their personal growth and their journey to resiliency
