The Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth engages immigrant youth and families to fulfill their potential in Canadian society. Since 1990, The Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth (CBFY) has successfully implemented programs that use a holistic and client centered approach in working with immigrant youth and their families.
The in-school settlement program helps newly arrived immigrants connect to Canadian society as well as integrate into their Calgary community. We do this through free and confidential support in the form of meetings, workshops and hands-on assistance. The Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Catholic School District are official partners of the ISS program. We also collaborate with over 50 local community organizations to refer clients to the services they need. Where necessary, staff will join clients at their meetings and partner agencies. This on-going support makes clients feel safe and comfortable as they navigate through Calgary. Due to multilingual ability of our team, we can provide interpretation services while also improving a newcomer’s ability to communicate in English. We are currently seeking a qualified In-School Settlement Program Supervisor. Under the direction of the In-School Settlement Program Manager, the role of the Supervisor is to provide administrative assistance and professional guidance to their assigned group of In-School Settlement Workers.
