Our program

We use interactive activities and culturally relevant examples to engage East Asian youth in understanding how one’s wellness has a significant impact on self, relationships and society. 

Our Goal

To encourage East Asian youth to become civically engaged and build greater awareness of positive well-being. 

Thornhill SS, 2017

"It is a great program that educates and raises awareness on Asian identities, cultures and barriers. You will be able to communicate with your classmates, make friends with them as well as learn more about yourself, your identity and the society around you more than ever.
