Youth Mentorship is a monthly program designed specifically for newcomer youth (aged 14-19) who are Permanent Residents and Convention Refugees, residing in Canada for less than five years.
Delivered by peer mentors, the program offers a welcoming space and hands-on activities which explore issues and topics that matter to you.
The 519 understands that arriving in Canada can be a difficult transition and provides support and resources for LGBTQ newcomers and refugees of all ages and backgrounds.
2012-2013 program highlights:
Healthy Relationships—What makes for a ‘good’ relationship? What is consent?
Diverse City—What is “community”? What does my community look like? What communities make up Toronto?
- Canada 101—Explore important people, places and events in Canada’s history
