Refugee, Immigrant & Newcomer children and youth have unique mentorship needs. Youth new to Alberta face challenges when they arrive - language barriers, gaps in their education and cultural adjustments. They also need to learn how to make connections in a country that is very different from where they have come from. Mentoring can be an important part of addressing these challenges. Come learn about culturally relevant programming with guest speakers from various mentoring organizations that support Refugee, Immigrant & Newcomer children and youth.
