Youth Opportunities

A non-profit community-based organization that is committed in addressing the immigration, integration, education, health, housing, social service, culture, and economic development needs of Somali Canadians and other immigrants in Canada through programs, service and advocacy.

This program supports students in the opportunity to shadow staff in different program areas of immigration, mental health, employment and recreation to gain future career-related experiences.
