Connecting with Homeless and At-Risk Youth – The Inter?Regional At Risk Youth Link (I?RAYL) is the result of a highly successful cross community/cross government partnership between the Ministry of Children and Families (MCFD), Pacific Community Resources, Police, TransLink, Greater Vancouver Transit Authority and other community agencies in Metro Vancouver. These partners work together to help homeless and at?risk youth who gather at SkyTrain stations in the BC Lower Mainland. The I?RAYL program started as a crime prevention pilot project in 2008, but secured ongoing funding from MCFD in November 2010. I?RAYL links these youth to the supports they need to avoid being victimized or exploited by drug dealers or gang members. It uses resource workers and existing outreach programs to connect youth to housing, addiction services, counselling, school supports and other services they need to improve their lives.
