Where Thirst Ends and Hope Begins

Station One Eight

Our Vision

Develop a flexible mobile support group space for youth, and to operate it as a mobile cafe that offers barista and employment training. We aim to build confidence and bring youth out of isolation by navigating challenges like addiction, solitude, and involvement in gangs or substance abuse, our commitment extends to fostering avenues for confidence and skill-building towards employment, as well as comprehensive well-being.

What needs does this address?

Youth Unlimited provides inclusive support for individuals facing challenges like substance abuse, juvenile delinquency, and mental health struggles. These issues often stem from a lack of community, emotional support, education, employment opportunities, or essential resources needed to address larger problems like addiction, hunger, homelessness, prostitution, gang involvement, drugs, or human trafficking.

Station One Eight Will

Provide a safe refuge for various demographics of youth

Be an intentional space for spiritual insight & growth

Be a place where youth can gain enhanced self-confidence and self-worth

Be a supplementary tool for existing programs at Youth Unlimited Calgary

Provide a work environment where youth can run peer-to-peer outreach & be trained in barista skill/cafe operations

Give youth work experience which makes them employable

God is my rock, in whom I 
take refuge, He reached 
down from on high and 
took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. 
He rescued me.

Psalm 18 (paraphrased)

Our Solution-Focused Vision

We’re devoted to the holistic development of youth in all aspects. Station One Eight embodies Youth Unlimited’s two-fold ministry approach:


To cultivate hope, we provide a safe and accepting space for youth with Christian mentors, delivering messages of hope. Additionally, we empower them to establish peer-to-peer outreach in their own circles.


Empower youth with employable skills like barista training, cash management, and small business operations. We value their potential, goals, and voices in shaping our outreach strategies.
