DONATE AND MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
DYS is a multi-service, community-based agency committed to supporting the developmental, emotional and social needs of children, youth and their families. Our mandate is to help improve the quality of life for those faced with mental health issues and concerns, improve their self esteem, stay in school and plan and prepare for their futures.
Your donations make a huge difference in our ability to maintain a high standard in our programs and services.
Money raised goes towards:
- Hiring qualified staff who have the skills and experience to work effectively with our clients
- Medical expenses including external therapeutic programs, and dental for youth in our group home
- Food and other essentials
- Art, therapeutic, and education programming equipment and other supplies
- Client transportation costs
Delisle Youth Services receives funding from the Ontario Government, the City of Toronto, Health Canada and the United Way. However, the demands for our services exceed the funding available. Therefore, we rely on the support of corporations, foundations and individuals to deliver important programs in our community.

VOLUNTEER - BE A VITAL RESOURCE
A few hours of your time makes all the difference. Donate your expertise and join our Fundraising, Finance, or Program and Planning Committees. Provide a workshop or teach a skill to youth in our Studio. Or share your expertise in organizational development, computer training, media or corporate relations, if you have a skill to offer -- we can probably use it.
Delisle is led by a volunteer board of directors committed to serving children and youth. If you share this commitment, and are able to devote a minimum of two evenings per month to strengthening Delisle's work, contact us to learn more about the requirements to become a board member.
HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE
9:30am | April 22, 2017
Lower Pitch, Wanless Park
On April 22, 2017, join Mary, Jennie and Katie on the road to ending the stigma associated with mental health challenges, and bring increased awareness to the importance of early intervention.
At 9:30am, join a crowd of supporters at Wanless Park's Lower Pitch to reflect on the importance of early intervention and awareness of mental health.
In the wake of his death by depression, James Muir’s children turned to Skylark Children, Youth & Families’ (formerly known as Delisle Youth Services) in-school counselling services for support. As a way of giving back, his wife Mary created James’ Journey to combat the stigma associated with mental illness, underscore the importance of early intervention in mental health, and raise funds for Skylark Children, Youth & Families.
All funds raised from James’ Journey will support Skylarks’ YouthCan Impact Walk-in Clinic & Counselling Programs. Help us make a meaningful difference in young people's lives.
