Values 

We recognize that the most significant value to all societies is their youth. That is why TYC’s focus is to collaborate with youth. Our passion is changing the lives of young Arab-Canadians by allowing them to create their futures.

  • EMPOWERMENT - challenging existing struggles and narratives that impede Arab-Canadian youth from thriving in joy and success.
  • DIVERSITY - recognizing that Arabs/Arab-Canadians are diverse and multifaceted peoples that add value through differences.
  • INCLUSION - empowering youth by celebrating and exercising their strengths through innovative projects and initiatives.
