The Don Bosco Youth Leadership Center is a non-profit youth community center that reaches out to over 1000 young people, adults and families in the east-end community ever year! Completely supported by volunteers and “contracted” staff, we offer recreational, social, cultural, leadership, educational and moral programs and services. Inspired by the Don Bosco’s preventative method, our aim is to promote an environment that is welcoming and nurturing. This is your home away from home! We invite you to visit our site often for all that the YLC is and offers!
