Who is The DAM and What Do They Do?
The DAM is a Not-for-profit organization, a youth drop-in Center in Mississauga. It’s run by paid and volunteer staff and mentors. The first location officially opened in July 1995
Through building relationships with the youth, mentors encourage youth to discover who they are and know where they are going, to make a positive impact in the world as they reach toward their full potential
The DAM currently has 2 locations. In Meadowvale and in Cooksville
Over 200 youth drop in regularly at each location. Over 70% attend programs each week
An ACE score (Adverse Childhood Experiences) is a tally of different types of abuse, neglect, and other hallmarks of a rough childhood. Higher the score higher the risk of health/social problems later in life. Problems such as alcoholism, depression, suicide, and domestic violence
About 30% of the youth attending the DAM drop-in center have a high ACE score (4+)
