Liberty For youth has also provided 23 bursaries and 10 post secondary scholarships to first generation College Students.

Frederick Dryden, the founder of Liberty For Youth, has recently been awarded the prestigious Canada's Top 40 Under 40 Award this past year 2011 for the work and organization that has been accomplished through Liberty For Youth. “Our mission is to provide alternatives for youth who are influenced by a negative environment”.
