Invite for Newcomer Youth from Across Canada
2015 Youth Action Gathering Conference – Vancouver. B.C. – Oct. 3 & 4
The Canadian Council for Refugees, in partnership with Vancouver Foundation’s Fresh Voices Initiative and MOSAIC, invite newcomer youth from across Canada to participate in the 2015 Youth Action Gathering Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The gathering brings together young immigrant and refugee leaders to learn, share, network and collaborate on actions towards common challenges and experiences of newcomer youth communities.
It is also an engaging weekend of leadership and skills building, developing peer relationships and FUN!
WHO Should Participate?
Everyone is welcome to apply; however, space is limited and priority will be given to:
- Racialized* immigrant and refugee youth
- Those who can make a commitment to attend the full event
- Immigrant & refugee youth from across Canada, aged 16 to 25 years
- Youth settlement workers and allies
*We recognize that race is a social construct, people as “racialized immigrant person” or “racialized people” are immigrants who also belong to a “racial minority”, “visible minority”, or are seen as “people of colour” or “non-White” (adjusted from OHRC).
