West End / Teen Immigrant Buddy Program (13-18 yrs)

Teen buddy program at the West End Community Centre

Teen Immigrant Buddy Program (13-18 yrs)

Are you a recent new immigrant or refugee youth living in Canada? This program is for you! This Free program is open to all teens going to King George Secondary or living in the West End. The Teen Buddy Program connects new immigrant youth to the West End (Buddies) with peers who are familiar with the city (Hosts). New immigrants have a smoother shift into life in the West End and hosts open their minds to the vibrant cultures which surround them. The program runs Thursday’s during the school year and involves weekly lounge and lunch sessions as well as a variety of activities such as: movies, bowling and other great out trips.

If you are interested in joining or want more information, please contact the Community Youth Worker in the Youth Office at 604.718.6210 for more information.

Thursdays January 19-March 9
