Serving Kings County, Annapolis County and West Hants

The Portal Youth Outreach Programs serve youth 16 to 24 years old who have been, are at risk of, or are:

• Experiencing multiple risk factors across the social determinants of health including, but not limited to, poverty, ability, social isolation, unstable housing/homelessness, family violence, sexual violence, substance abuse, emotional/mental health issues and intergenerational trauma. While Schools Plus is working with youth attached to the school, our work is usually with those not in school. 

• Impacted by discrimination (i.e., African Nova Scotian, Mi’kmaq / Indigenous, Acadian, 2SLGBTQ+, and immigrant/newcomers) and experiencing systemic, historical, and societal inequities, which exponentially compound the impact of the risk factors. If you are a youth contact us directly if you are a worker, a referral form is preferred but not required; click here.

For youth call or text 902-691-6556. We also have a toll free line- 1-855-261-3773. For Community Partners- Intake form. Please send it in a secure format to A heads up that the referral has been sent would be valuable.
