Thank you for your support and make it possible

Thanks to your support we were able to make it at the Youth Action Gathering, YAG.

The YAG was  hosted by the Canadian Council for Refugees in Moncton, New Brunswick and we had a wonderful time! In preparation for this trip, we did a lot of fundraising including hosting two community dinners, and the creation and selling of personalized Tote Bags!

At the YAG, members of the group had the chance to participate in bilingual workshops learning about leadership skills, community engagement, and advocating for the rights of all newcomer youth living in Canada. As well as attending the Moncton AfroFest Gala, and attending Hopewell Rocks – a once in a lifetime opportunity!

 

We were able to make it thanks to the support from each one of you!!

Help us to get our FCJ Youth Network to the Youth Action Gatherings (YAG) .

We are raising  funds to cover the cost to travel to attend The Youth Action Gatherings (YAG) in Moncton, New Brunswick in October.

The Youth Action Gatherings (YAG) bring together immigrant and refugee youth from across Canada to share, learn and together strategize about how to address common challenges. The YAG is a space where newcomer youth across Canada build a community of support that persists even when they go back home.

 

Join us at our dinner for our FCJ Youth Network, on Wednesday September 25th, at 7 o’clock.  We will be preparing a delicious spaghetti dinner, with organic local ingredients, and selling tote bags as well! The cost for dinner will be $15 and the tote bags will be $15 as well! Your support will make the difference in helping us reach our goal!!

Spoken Word: Same Difference

Stereotypes, prejudices and all the negative labels that newcomer youth are painted with steered us in making this spoken word video. It came as an idea to some of the youth from FCJ Refugee Centre Youth Network who attended an anti-islamophobia workshop together with the strong voices from OCASI and the CCR Youth Network. We wanted to change the approach or the way youth of precarious migration status are treated once they seek assistance from service providers. By FCJ Refugee Centre Youth Network
