Dive Into YSJ

Welcome to the Dive into YSJ: Youth Empowerment Program!

This program is an after school program for permanent resident youth, ages 16-19, to learn leadership, empowerment, and creativity skills for success. The program will feature workshops on various leadership, confidence, and empowerment topics to help you succeed in furthering education, your career, or starting your business.

As this program is a cohort-based after school program, there will be some assessments to ensure the program is completed. This is to ensure you are getting the most out of the program, and that you can include your experience within this program on resumes, cover letters, job application, and college/scholarship applications.

We will have 3 Cohorts. The first session begins on October 28th until December 18th and will be held entirely online. Register down below, and you will receive the link to join the roster for the program.

We hope to see you there!

On Friday, July 10, 2020 at 12pm, we had a picnic at Lily Lake! We got to know one another, and played some games, learned about the program, facilitated by Kieran, PRUDE Inc.'s Immigrant Youth Coordinator. Follow us on our program's Facebook group: 



If you or anyone you know are a newcomer in the ages of 16-19, please reach out to us! If you are interested in participating in the program, please fill out our registration form.

Thank you for your participation and energy to share your story with us. We believe you are the future of Saint John, Canada.
