About Us

The STEP Youth Resource Centre provides support services, life skills, and counselling for youth in the St. Catharines and greater Niagara Region communities. We provide programs for youth that will engage them in activities on a range of topics and develop community connections.

The STEP Youth Resource Centre was born out of a love for our community and the people within it. We noticed an increasing number of youth on the streets, which was troubling to us. We believe that supporting our youth today to choose a constructive path will, in turn, create supportive citizens of our community in the future. These foundational beliefs led to the opening of the STEP Youth Resource Centre on September 29, 2019. We strongly feel that everyone deserves someone who cares about them, and we hope that we can provide that at STEP.

We are open Monday to Friday, from 9:00am to 3:00pm. We are closed on holidays.

We envisioned creating a “Circle of Care” that would connect young people with resources, with caring mentors, and with a hub for accessing and navigating various resources available in our community.
