Using a strength-based approach, Jeunesse Loyola inspires belonging and growth in the youth of NDG, their families and their communities through social, recreational and educational programming, delivered in a safe and inclusive environment.
History Starting in the early 1970s as a grass roots organization, The Loyola Association for the Development for Youth was formalized in 1998 as a charitable non-profit organization with a primary focus on children (4-17) of the surrounding community. The Association consists of volunteer parents and community members, who reflect the common shared goals and aspirations of providing quality programs. We have always aspired to provide programs that will allow participants to develop skills such as cooperation, leadership, independent thinking, and healthy interpersonal relationships with others. Over the years the Loyola Center has offered sports and recreation services, as well as played an integral role in the continued positive development of the community that surrounds us. Working with other community partners, the Association seeks to ensure a good quality of life and access to resources for its member families.
