The Representative for Children and Youth of BC and Vancouver Foundation are hosting a Summit on October 13 & 14 at the SFUWosk Centre for Dialogue: Fresh Voices from Long Journeys: Insights of Immigrant and Refugee Youth. The Summit has been designed by an advisory group of 20 immigrant youth and youth workers, and explores issues of identity, belonging and inclusion in the context of different systems – school, community, home – that impact their lives. Approximately 100 young people will be joined by 60 policy makers, funders,service providers whose work and decisions shape the ability of newcomers to arrive, grow and succeed.
It’s a short turn-around– our open call for youth application is Friday, September 30.
