We offer specific programs for newcomers aged 14-25 in Kitchener-Waterloo who are interested in an opportunity for leadership development, personal growth and empowerment.  We believe that as a community, we can and should listen to the voices of newcomer youth.  Through these programs, we help train young people on how to make a positive difference in their communities.

We help expand youth knowledge and enhance understanding of Canadian culture, systems, values, rights and responsibilities.

We are here to empower immigrant youth to make informed choices that are consistent with their values and help them achieve their dreams.
