In 2013, our family arrived in Canada. I was a mathematics teacher for over 20 years in my home country. As a teacher, I always believe that the timing for learning is the most important factor. I thought that I would happily study in college again and my children could assimilate into Canadian education well when I began a new life with my family in Canada. However, as a newcomer, I realized that our primary goal was hard to achieve. Not only my children but also others had difficulties building future academic plans by themselves. As time flows, I noticed that most of us wanted to have information from someone else who had previous experiences. I met many students who had had to change their majors because the programs were not fit with their educational interests.
Even though parents knew education is the most priority, they should have to adapt to a new country while supporting their families. It leads them to focus on living rather than educate their children. Also, it is hard for them to find someone who gives academic guides to their children. The most significant element in education is the proper timing.
I believe it is important to have specialized mentors from kindergarten to adulthood to guide and provide clear paths to your goals.
This is what inspired me to found a Non-Profit Organization, which is named “Youth Dream Canada” that was established in 2019. YDC mentors will provide the best guidance to children, adolescents, post-secondary students, and their parents.
If you want to achieve your goal, let’s start it right now! Our mentors are here for you.
