Community Development Council Durham is here to help.

"Moving to a new country can be a great adventure but at the same time ti may turn into a big challenge for youth. Apart from getting over the sadness of leaving your county, family, and friends behind, the hurdles faced in a new country can be many. At the Community Development Council Durham, we have developed a friendship program where Canadian youth volunteers assist their newcomer peers with the settlement process.

If you have recently moved to Canada or have lived here for some time and still don't feel at home, feel lonely, have not really made any friends, need to practice your English language skills, require assistance with homework, want to make friends at school, need to complete your community service hours, need someone to talk to or just need some extra support, then the HOST (Youth) Program is for you!"

This is a Program by Citizenship and Immigration Canada
