Our programs focus on building knowledge of Canada and Calgary’s culture; active participation and integration within the local community; improved English language skills; development of personal, social and leadership skills; and successful graduation from school.
Nothing better explains the impact of our work, than the stories of youth and families who overcame challenges to integrate successfully into Canada and Calgary. Explore their journeys to Canada and their stories of inspiration and resilience.
In 1990, a group of committed citizens formed CBFY after a young immigrant lost his life due to gang violence. Since our agency's inception, we have successfully transformed the lives of thousands of immigrants and newcomers.
Over 10,000 immigrant youth and families are vulnerable to loneliness, isolation and the risk of feeling left out of Canadian society. Many are looking for a hand up, not a hand out. With your support we can improve their lives and build the next generation of Canadians.
Come join us at the Beddington Heights Community Association for an afternoon of entertainment, food and a Garage Sale. 100% of the proceeds of the sale go to empower youth from the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth.
