OUR IMPACT

I am grateful for NYCH and for everyone who helped me get to where I am today.
— Tennur, former NYCH participant

After moving to Canada from Turkey in 2006, Tennur turned to NYCH to learn English, find employment support and make new friends. Today, Tennur has a meaningful career working in the non-profit sector and her two kids are exploring their own potential at Canadian universities.
