VIDEO // First Calgary Financial – NeighbourGOOD
First Calgary Financial not only made a significant contribution to the YMAP program but also have given the gift of their time and talent. YMAP is an inclusive afterschool program that supports newcomer high school youth, who now call Canada their home. Meeting once a week under the mentorship of their coordinator, YMAP helps ease the transition to high school in a new country by building a healthy community for young newcomers to make friends and practice skills related to Canadian economic, social, cultural and political integration. By ensuring a healthy integration through intentional programming, youth build a sense of belonging, identity, confidence and develop leadership skills that will ensure their success beyond high school.
