project reach out
Project Reach Out (PRO), also known as “The Bus” is an innovative, award-winning mobile youth centre, serving the Tri-City communities since 2004. Since its conception, Project Reach Out has made over 35,000 connections in the community, providing engagement with youth. The Bus is a mobile one-stop-shop for youth to access food, clothing, winter gear, blankets, sexual health supplies, harm reduction supplies (including Naloxone), personal hygiene supplies, and menstrual health products.
Outreach Workers on the Bus also provide sexual health and drug education, counselling support, conflict resolution, referrals, and in-the-moment support. The Bus is LGBTQ2S+ friendly and operates from a harm reduction lens.
We meet youth where they are, to help them get to where they want to go.
Staffing our Bus are Outreach Youth Workers who have diverse backgrounds in fields like Child and Youth Care, Social Work, and Addictions Counselling. Each discipline adds to the uniqueness of our team to best reflect the wide variety of life experience in the youth we encounter.
