The Youth Volunteer Program (YVP) is an initiative designed by Immigrant Services Calgary to assist individuals aged 14-20, who are newcomers to Canada. YVP activities have, in the past, ranged from the preparation and serving of food to the homeless, to a community talent show designed, hosted and delivered by the youth in our program. This program offers immigrant youth a platform to utilize their talents, to volunteer in and around the city of Calgary.
