Calgary Vietnamese Youth Association


CVYA has funded over 100 young leaders and given them access to leadership programs across North America. We hosted regional and national conferences, inspiring youth, providing them with skills, and matching youth to mentors in many fields.

We aim to provide opportunities for youth to be their best in their personal, professional and community lives.

OuR Story

Formed in 2002, the Calgary Vietnamese Youth Group (CVYG) is a not-for-profit youth empowerment initiative that provides activities and support to Vietnamese youth to help them be their best - providing them with a strong foundation for success in school, work, personal and community lives.

CVYG’s mission is to help the youth build a bright future and have greater participation and leadership roles in their communities.

In January 2011, CVYG incorporated as a non-profit society, and is now called Calgary Vietnamese Youth Association.

Syrian refugee sponsor

CVYA stepped up to sponsor a Syrian refugee family. With the help of the Calgary Vietnamese Canadian Association and the community, CVYA raied $17,000 to provide support for a family of three. Because of this support, the family is now thriving in Canada and just welcomed their second baby boy, Michael.
