— WHAT IS TYPS?
TYPS (Toronto Youth Peer Support) Network is a project by the #actyes program initiative of DreBu, a non profit organization based in South Parkdale. The project’s vision is to create a network for youth between the ages of 15-30, and a space where they can seek support and guidance from peer supporters in a safe environment. By matching the needs of youth, specifically those dealing with various barriers (income, language, status, etc.) with the right resources and help, we believe we can unlock the potential that every young person has to succeed in Canada.
TYPS Himalayan network project is made possible with generous support from Laidlaw Foundation's Youth-led Community Change Grant.
