The Settlement for Newcomers Through Activities and Programs, also known as SNAP, provides a welcoming and safe environment for the young newcomers to share their adjustment challenges and receive support. We understand that settlement in a new country offers unique challenges to youth who have one foot in the culture of their parents and the other foot in the culture of their peers. This program strives to help youth experience a healthy adjustment and integration into Canadian society. There is a strong emphasis on creating age-appropriate and fun ways to improve English language skills, increase social interaction, and develop new friendships.

SNAP Youth Program
The Settlement for Newcomers Through Activities and Programs, also known as SNAP
SNAP offers weekly activities and special events which give the youth opportunity to explore their new community and learn more about Canadian culture. We also have special activities and creative projects which allow the youth to share their unique cultural heritage.
SNAP provides a bridge for kids to engage with each other and their new community, showing them new sports, recreation, and creative activities, and how to make new friends, both in and out of school.
Connect with SNAP on Social!
A bright and inclusive Central Albertan society includes the happiness and well-being of Newcomer youth in our area. Care for Newcomers wants to help you feel welcome, integrate in schools, make friends and find a sense of belonging, and set you up for a successful life in Canada.
