In April 2008, The Vietnamese Association, Toronto launched its Youth Settlement Program. We offer many activities and services to youth aged 13 to 24 of all ethnicities. Our program facilitates the adaptation of newcomers into their new life in Canada.

The Youth Settlement Team fosters a fun, educational and comfortable environment for our youth to seek referrals and peer counselling, connect with Youth Mentors for guidance and support as well as have an opportunity to learn while making new friends.

We offer a wide range of FREE activities and services to cater to your needs. Whether you are looking to learn how to cook healthy meals in our cooking class, fix up your resume for job searching, stay physically active at our drop in sports program, or have someone to simply share your thoughts with, the Youth Settlement Team can help.
