Mission Statement

YOUNG VOICES CAN! (formerly Peace Camp Ottawa): Our mission is to deliver action-oriented community programs dedicated to conflict resolution for youth within local  communities. We partner with local high schools and Ashbury College  course to provide leadership and conflict resolution skills. Participants from Ottawa include youth from diverse cultures, including  Muslim, Christian and Jewish youth for a year long program. In the summer  we bring the youth together for a summer experience at Ashbury College. Our vision is to foster understanding, open communication and co-existence between young people, as well as to reflect and build self-awareness – and have fun.
