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 during lunch hour, giving youth an opportunity to engage in some intercultural activities and connect with their classmates. Homework help may also be available at this time. Contact us to see if we are at your school or to request a Culture Club to be added!
  • After-school programs run every weekday, offering homework support, life skills lessons, leadership training, and recreation opportunities. Spaces are limited to encourage social distancing and registration is required. Please contact us if you would like to attend.
  • 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 may be available for Permanent Residents if needed.

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.
