Who We Are


  • Fund youth led projects to advance student leadership skills in Delta
  • Fund leadership & spirit type bursaries to graduating Delta youth
  • Provide mentorship opportunities for youth to learn employment skills at DYSL
  • Promote, develop and implement youth led initiatives, volunteerism and community building partnerships


Our mission is to support and engage youth in Delta to achieve their full potential.


Our vision is of a community and an agency that provide a friendly, stimulating safe and caring environment in which to live and work.

DYSL is an Enterprising Non-Profit, thus, our sustainable funding comes mainly from our DYSL WearHouse Thrift Store in Tsawwassen. This is not your ordinary Thrift Store! It has become a social enterprise for volunteers and customers to feel welcomed, nurtured and always appreciated...and have fun. Our staff and volunteers provide mentoring and opportunities for people of all ages, and of all abilities, to learn new skills. In addition, we also, provide a safe and respectful environment for youth to complete community hours.

We fund and develop programs to high schools in South and North Delta. It is to develop leadership and encourage volunteering. For more information on our programs, please see our programs page.

Not only are we a charitable organization, but we also donate to other charities. We donate gifts to needy youth in Delta at Christmas, funding to youthinbc.com chat line, clothing to the downtown Eastside shelters and bedding to the Delta Community Animal Shelter.


Bursaries are issued to graduating Grade 12 students for post-secondary education. We are proud to announce that we have increased our Bursaries:

Spirit Award Bursaries from $500 to $1,000 to a student at each of Delta’s seven high schools. Recipients will have demonstrated personal accomplishments despite adversity throughout their high school years.

Community Service & Volunteerism Bursaries were awarded to 4 outstanding youth for demonstrating exceptional service to Delta Community.

Leadership Bursaries for 2015 were awarded to 14 recipients, each recipient will be awarded $1,000. Three students at each of Delta’s seven high schools and private schools will receive these bursaries. We are proud to announce that we are increasing our Bursaries from 9 to 26 @ $1,000 each in 2014!

Spirit Award Bursaries – Bursaries will be issued to graduating students in Grade 12 who have overcome personal struggles, as well Bursaries to graduating students that have displayed leadership qualities and volunteered within their community – each in the amount of $1,000.

Students wishing to apply for 2018 bursaries are asked to apply through their high school graduation counsellor and/or career centre.

The Delta Youth Support Link volunteers are the heart and soul of the DYSL charity and thrift store. They provide an invaluable energy, expertise and service to our organization. We are always in need of volunteers for special events, fundraisers, thrift store and administrative support. WE NEED YOU! To join our dynamic DYSL Team please email us at dysldirectors@gmail.com.
