For over 20 years, YouthLink has been engaging and empowering youth to make confident and positive choices surrounding some of their greatest challenges. In 2013, the original YouthLink museum & interpretive centre was flooded and shut down. In August 2015, a brand new 26,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art centre was opened at the WestWinds Calgary Police Headquarters, allowing us to expand our school programs and offer new programs for youth & adults
