About Us

Our Mission

To empower youth and their families by promoting well-being through Sports, Culture and Support Groups in Vaughan and its surroundings.

Our Vision

A vibrant and inclusive community where Fuerza Latina Community Services is a leading provider of services for youth and their families in Vaughan.

Our Journey

The idea was born out of a desire to provide youth with constructive, alternative programs helping to direct them away from negative behaviour, and encouraging other youth to embrace a second chance.

Since 2003, the desire becomes a reality as youth from the community gather together as a group, regardless of ethnicity or culture to learn the value of teamwork, inter-personal relationships and community.

What We Believe in

  • We value, respect and treat everyone as we would like to be treated
  • We recognize potential in everyone
  • We care about each individual and we want them to do well
  • We provide a safe and supportive environment
  • We believe in respect for others, property, and the environment
  • We believe our work makes a difference.
