Youth Programs

Our youth programs focus on enhancing protective factors, promoting education, re-establishing cultural identity, reducing high-risk behaviors, and increasing the circles of support for youth.  We approach youth resiliency and wellness with a focus on cultural sensitivity and health promotion, removing barriers to the social determinants of health for immigrant, refugee, Canadian youth.
