Many of the youth we serve either live in low income families, are first generation Canadians, have mental health challenges, or have never had a connection with a church. If you feel compassion for youth like this, then a career with Youth Unlimited may be for you. We are currently hiring a youth worker to serve in a South Asian community in Abbotsford with teen and pre-teen youth and their families.
