About Us

The Ontario Youth Department exists to support the Ministry Units of the Ontario Division in the development and discipleship of children, youth, and young adults. We do this through divisional events, and by offering Ministry Units programming support, resources and more. Leadership development and support for our youth workers is also important to us and we strive to continually provide events, resources and supports for this. Ontario Youth is also proud to run The Salvation Army Ontario Camping Ministries, running camping programs, and providing youth and young adults with both employment but also discipleship and leadership development. The Ontario Youth Department also supports candidates for officer training.
