Through our youth program, we help newcomer youth develop leadership skills and a sense of belonging within a community of youth. We plan free programs with youth so that our activities reflect what’s important to youth. Driven by a core group of youth, our programming is strengths-based and responsive to youths’ evolving needs. Our programming addresses complex barriers facing newcomer youth in Toronto and prioritizes youth emotional safety.
At ACCT, youth are mentored by a team of settlement counsellors and youth further supported through our Instagram groups where we plan activities together and can chat about issues youth are facing.
