Project Reach Out is the first multi-service mobile drop-in centre and outreach program in Canada. With the use of modified shuttle buses and staffed by a team of adult youth workers, peer mentors and volunteers, the buses will travel after-hours to areas of the community where youth naturally congregate – parks, convenience stores, skate board parks, schools, "Hot Spots" etc., and actively seeks out and engages street involved youth. The two buses will meet youth where they are and provide support and services to street involed youth in the Tri-Cities area (Coquitlam, Port Couitlam, and Port Moody), an estimated 20,000 youth ages 12-18.
