Youth Forum 2015
CIWA's Youth Forum 2015, was held at the Genesis Centre for Community Wellness on Valentine's Day. The theme of this year's event was 'Building Communities, Empowering Youth, and Celebrating Daughters.' The event promoted cross-cultural awareness and understanding between immigrant and mainstream youth, as well as their families. It also celebrated the achievements of the Youth Mentorship Program at CIWA, a program that enhances intercultural understanding and provides youth with opportunities for personal growth through one-on-one support and group sessions. Youth and their families participated in interactive booths and there were also speeches and performances throughout the day.

At the Youth Forum, on February 14th, three young and exceptional community builders were awarded Daughters' Day Awards. Daughters’ Day Awards celebrates the lives, contributions, and achievements of all daughters.
The following three exceptional young ladies were awarded as Daughters of the Year, 2015.
The awards were generously sponsored by Gerda R. Bloemraad, a long-time supporter of CIWA and our clients.
