Thank you for your interest in supporting the Youth Services Bureau. There are many ways to show your support of at-risk youth in our community! Please contact Rachel Lessard at or 613-729-1000 ext. 50245 if you are interested in getting involved.

Donate Your PC Optimum Points

Did you know you can donate your PC Optimum Points to YSB? When you donate your points, you make it possible for YSB to purchase much-needed items for our programs, including toiletries and household supplies. It’s easy to donate – simply log-in to your PC Optimum account here, and select the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa in the “donate” page!

Organize a Third-Party Event

With your support, we can together help impact the lives of youth tomorrow, today. If you’d like to organize a third party event in support of YSB, we have developed a DIY program to help you in your event planning and fundraising. You can find more information HERE.

We would be happy to assist you with any questions you have or to brainstorm event ideas. Contact Rachel Lessard at or 613-729-1000 ext. 50245 for assistance.

Donate a Car

Donate a Car Canada accepts Vehicle Donations for the Youth Services Bureau. Free towing is provided. When you donate your vehicle to YSB through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction. Donate a Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for YSB to benefit. After your vehicle donation is complete, we’ll send you a tax receipt, and you’ll know that proceeds from your vehicle will be moving at-risk youth forward to a brighter future!
