In the late 1990's, Youth Impact saw a gap in services and began offering various outreach programs, thus diversifying its mandate and moving beyond solely residential services. The majority of these services operate out of the Youth QUEST Central building at 199 St. George Street in Moncton, NB.
Drug Intervention Program
The Drug Intervention Program serves youth ages 15 — 24 who struggle with illicit drug use and have had conflict with the justice system. This voluntary program provides youth with information, support and strategies that will assist them in alleviating their drug usage and alter their criminal behavior. Through the development of a directional plan tailored to each individual’s strengths and needs, youth will become more engaged in education, employment and community.

Intensive Support Program (ISP)
ISP serves youth in the criminal justice system that are at risk of progressing to a custodial sentence without support in their community and also works with youth who are serving one-third of a custodial sentence in their community. It provides programming that reflects the youth’s strengths and struggles with self, family relations, substance abuse, education/employment, and positive community involvement.
Impact Learning Centre
The Impact Learning Centre is an academic upgrading program for youth 18 to 24 years of age who have not experienced success in a typical classroom setting. Youth progress at their own pace, with the goal of successfully completing the General Education Development (GED) exam. Youth attend part-time and have the option to learn directly from the written material or study on-line. The program has its own instructor, Linda, however all participants are screened by QUEST Case Management.
Youth Works is an 18-week program employing eight at-risk youth between the ages of 16 to 24, who are employment disadvantaged. It is a group-based employability skills intervention program that gives youth an opportunity to build upon their existing strengths in a safe environment and learn new skills in the areas of: work ethics, budgeting, healthy lifestyles, and social skills.
