Our group creates a safe space, positive environment, and deliver activities and programs, to engage the Karen youth whom are originally from Myanmar country, because we want to provide programs and activities that have never been provided before, for the Karen youth to be able to develop their social identity, healthy relationships and interpersonal skills. OKYC is also to provide strong supportive friends and family for the Karen Youth living in Ottawa. We are working hard for the Karen Youth in Ottawa, providing programs and monthly activities to decrease the isolation of the youth within our community and to provide a safe space where the youth can share knowledge, experiences, maintain their culture at the same time.
Success is where preparation and opportunities meet.
