Programs & services 

We develop and deliver a variety of educational and recreational programs for youth and families on an ongoing basis. FUTFS places a priority in meeting the needs of our younger community members. The transition from childhood to adulthood can be a difficult journey and is made only more overwhelming by the cultural and language barriers that many Korean youth are faced with on arrival in Canada.

The 13-25 age group poses unique challenges to project development and delivery: 1) There is a very diverse range of interests and assessed needs within a relatively small age range; 2) There are varying levels of comfort with the Korean and English languages among participants.

FUTFS is committed to providing support to those who face emotional, mental, cultural and psychological challenges by providing an array of counselling services and educational workshops. Systematic volunteer training sessions are also available for enthusiastic individuals who are interested in volunteering as a counsellor.FUTFS is always making an effort to promote healthy lifestyle among the families in the Korean-Canadian community by providing 24 hour telephone counselling, face-to-face counselling and programs such as Counsellor Volunteer Training, outdoor/ indoor Recreation, Outreach services, workshops and seminars to improve various family lifestyles.

English and Sing Along Class This training has two purposes. One thing is to teach the participants skills as facilitator thorough activities.
The second is to train the participants so that they can lead youth groups and help youths in group activities. Through this training program, participants will learn what community-based organizations are, what the volunteering really means, how the programs for youths are organized, how these knowledge, information and resources can enrich one’s life, and how the clients interact in the group environment. At the end, the participants will be able to apply these experiences to their real life situations.
