What is P4Y?

  • The Passion for Youth Fine Arts Program provides a safe and supportive environment for Ottawa’s street-involved youth to engage in the arts community.

What do we believe?

  • We believe that every youth has unique strengths that can be built upon in order to produce lasting change. Through a Strength-Based Approach, youth are able to develop their strengths, gain self-esteem and build positive relationships with their community

What do we do at P4Y?

  • We share a meal together
  • We spend time doing visual arts and/or music. Participants are free to work on individual projects during this time.
  • We have monthly workshops and field trips
