Newcomer Youth Settlement

Newcomer Youth programs at WoodGreen meet the specific needs of youth who are new to Canada, arriving either with their families or on their own. Many newcomer youth face issues of isolation, poverty, declining mental health, adapting to a new country and learning a new language (English), to name a few.

WoodGreen offers a wide range of settlement services for newcomer youth ages 13-24 such as counselling, group programs including workshops, homework and arts clubs, sports, events and trips. We also provide in-class English language supports for newcomer youth in ESL classes at secondary schools across the city.

Services are free or very low cost.
