Weekly Update Sept 5 – 11, 2016


The Arab Youth Refugee Consultation event will be held in partnership by The Fresh Voices Initiative of Vancouver Foundation and by ISSofBC.

Arabic speaking, specifically Syrian youth, between the ages 14-25 years old are invited to attend this conversation to share their experiences of settling in British Columbia. The objectives for this event are as follows:

  1. Gathering youth insights on their experiences with current settlement programs and services for refugees.
  2. Providing a space in Arabic for youth who have recently come as refugees to connect with each other and strengthen their network of support.
  3. Share tools and a platform to provide feedback on programs, policy and practices in regards to refugee integration – What can we all learn so that all refugees are included in Canadian Society?
