Nexus Youth Services - For You. With You.
Since 1985, Nexus Youth Services has offered counselling and supports to youth ages 14 to 24 who live in the Region of Peel and who may be experiencing a range of social, emotional, or behavioural difficulties.
Our programs utilize youth engagement strategies to ensure that youth are meaningfully involved in planning, implementing and evaluating services that have a direct impact on their youth community. As part of this endeavour, we recently launched a Facebook page and Twitter account to help us reach out to the youth in our community.
Nexus Youth Services creates opportunities for youth by providing high quality services that are inclusive and responsive to the needs and voices of youth.

Nexus Youth Services has a strategic alliance with Peel Children’s Centre. Under this arrangement, the two agencies have a common Board of Directors and share administrative services. This arrangement reduces Nexus Youth Services’ overhead costs and allows the two agencies to provide a broader range of services than either agency could provide on its own.
