Nanaimo Youth Services Association

"Creating a respectful atmosphere of possibility for youth by providing them with skills to achieve their goals"

Scam Notice & Warning
Notice to the Community of Nanaimo and surrounding area.
Nanaimo Youth Services Association is sad to report that during the last month we have experienced three separate incidences of people falsely claiming to be working on fundraising efforts for our organization and the youth it serves. Although, we are not currently engaged in any formal fundraising campaign the Board of Directors of NYSA is still accepting ongoing donations from the general public. We would like to warn the community that any donations being solicited under our name represent a scam. If you are approached by a person or group claiming to be fundraising on behalf of NYSA please call the office at 250-754-1989 to let us know so we can take the appropriate legal action.
