The Mission of the Osgoode Youth Association (O-YA) is to enrich the quality of life for youth ages 7 – 18 in the Osgood Ward of rural Ottawa. We are dedicated to harnessing the community to deliver a rich variety of programs and services aimed at prevention, education, skill building, inspiration, socialization and recreation; supporting young people in their development as successful, independent and involved citizens.
Not only is O-YA the envy of other Ottawa area rural communities, but at a recent Youth Centre’s Canada National Conference, it was recognized as one of the standout youth centres in all of Canada. Mayor Watson calls O-YA the "gold standard of youth centres in Ottawa".

Before School Breakfast Program (Grades 2 - 6)

Day Camps during school holidays (Grades 2 - 6)
Teen Drop In & b.side youth cafe (Grades 7 - 12)
