Immigrant Youth Program in Central Alberta
After a newcomer family moves to Canada, an exciting journey awaits the school-aged children and youth! A new home, new school, new teachers, new friends, new curriculum, and much more. New things are exciting, but they can also be challenging or overwhelming. Many young newcomers are struggling and feeling lost in their new environment.
The Care for Newcomers Youth Settlement team is here to help you effectively integrate into the Alberta school system, learn to adapt to Canadian cultures, and cope with cultural, social, emotional, and other relationship-related challenges.
We provide settlement support services in schools, after-school, and during breaks throughout the year.
