Immigrant Youth Services

Immigrant Youth Services offers a variety of programs to help newcomer youth integrate into life in Canada.

Culture Club runs weekly in seven middle and high schools, giving youth a safe space to come at lunch time to meet new friends and get support from a Youth Worker.

After school programs run every weekday, offering a free snack, homework support, life skills lessons, leadership training, and recreation opportunities.

• One-to-One Support from a Youth Worker is available for vulnerable youth to help them get their schooling back on track, find employment, housing, medical care, mental health supports, or whatever else they need to achieve their goals.

• Transportation is provided for Permanent Residents.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The after school program is for youth aged 12-18 who are new to Canada. Priority is given to Permanent Residents.
  • One-to-one support through the Moving Ahead Program is for vulnerable youth aged 14-24 who are Permanent Residents, Protected Persons, or individuals who have been selected to become Permanent Residents by the government of Canada and have received a letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada stating so.
