Youth Bridging Program
The Youth Bridging Program (YBP) provides assistance to youth and young adults who are in a transitional period in their lives. The program supports individuals as they develop the necessary skills to be leaders in the community while helping them to make informed decisions about their future career and educational goals.
The program connects participants with events in their school and community and also assists them in finding volunteer opportunities. The program offers youth-focused and youth-driven workshops designed to help facilitate participants’ successful transition to post-secondary education and/or integration into the Canadian labour market.
Youth Group assists in the social transition of refugee and immigrant youth into Canadian society while supporting their language learning, skills development, sense of empowerment, and community engagement. This youth-led program is offered once per month and includes delivery of various educational workshops, recreational activities, and community events.
