Child & Youth Friendly Ottawa

"From the time we opened our doors in 1997, CAYFO, a tiny yet dynamic not for profit youth organization, has focused its attention on providing the very best services to the young people of Canada's capital city. We've promoted youth engagement and volunteering. We have the best youth awards program in Canada, if not the world! We have spearheaded innovative anti bullying and victimization projects. We have thrown together some of the best youth conferences ever! We have promoted youth leadership. We have encouraged mentor initiatives. We've helped children at risk. We've bridged the generations and promoted partnerships. We have encouraged young people to excel - and they've excelled - and we've celebrated their excellence. We do it because it needs to be done. The young people of Ottawa deserve no less." [from the website]
