About Justin Slade Youth Foundation

JSYF is a registered non-profit agency that provides youth ages 12-17 with organized programs, community engagement and a casual drop in center that promotes valuable opportunities for social interaction.
For the past 13 years since inception, JSYF has proudly served the young people of Fort McMurray with programs and workshops to help better themselves. All of their programming, events and activities are offered free of charge to any and all youth, regardless of what socio- economic status they may face.
The foundation’s programs are recreational, yet based on the idea of prevention. Each program hosted by the foundation has been done with the intention that youth who are involved and supported have more opportunities to make positive life decisions than those who lack support and empowerment.
