Planet Youth: raising youth up, together

This is a collaborative, long-term approach that supports youth by making changes within their social environment focusing on families, peer groups, schools, and leisure time. Youth well-being is a direct reflection of the environments they grow up in, and the goal is to positively impact individual mental health and overall community well-being. The International Planet Youth model is currently being adopted and successfully implemented around the world.

Community + Love + Youth

  • The working vision of Planet Youth Calgary is to enhance the wellbeing and resilience of local youth, empowering them to live their best life.
  • Gathering youth voice about what they need to support their wellness.
  • Instead of providing treatment to an existing problem, Planet Youth is an opportunity to prevent the problem from happening in the first place (primary prevention).

Planet Youth would love for you to be part of the Community Action Team in your community by working together and investing in our young people and support them learn to make smart decisions for themselves in the future. If you are excited about being part of this important initiative, we invite you to join us by emailing:
