Gordon House Youth S.E.A.R.Ch. (G.H.Y.S.) has been dedicated to supporting youth throughout the Vancouver Lower Mainland for over 30 years. Originally called the Davie Street Youth Project, this program began initially to help young people involved in the sex trade in the Davie Street area to find employment alternatives. The program later evolved into a social venture called Low-Cost Labour, a landscaping business designed to employ sex trade workers in the West End, and in 1990 the name changed to Youth Works.

In 1996 G.H.Y.S. was born and has evolved as one of Vancouver's reputable employment-training programs for youth. While the methods of acquainting youth with job-ready skills has shifted throughout the years, our focus remained the same: to assist youth facing multiple barriers to employment move towards independence and gain the life skills and tools required for stability and success. Our adaptation to the changing needs of the labour market, hiring needs of employers, and the youth demographic have since been a key attribute of G.H.Y.S. programs success.

"It has been our pleasure to be a partner with Gordon House Youth S.E.A.R.Ch. We believe that Gordon House provides a valuable service to our community. It is our intention to continue our fundraising efforts and hopefully enable Gordon House Youth S.E.A.R.Ch. to reach more at risk youth."
