Over the past eight years, the FCJ Youth Network has shaped a positive and inclusive space to welcome migrant and refugee youth from around the world. The group works from a strong intersectional framework, and welcomes anyone regardless of their immigration status, gender identity, sexual identity, language ability, length of time in Canada, skin colour, country of origin, or any other aspect of their identity. The group strives to celebrate the resilience and potential of each of its members, and address the multiple barriers that impede their full and equitable participation in Canadian society. The group is open for migrant and refugee youth between the ages of 14 and 25 (and allies). We meet every Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 at the FCJ Refugee Centre.
We are here for you during these difficult times! Our weekly drop-ins have moved to GotoMeeting. Every Wednesday, the FCJ Youth Network is meeting virtually to continue supporting one another while we practice physical distance. Connect with us if you need any type of support during the COVID-19 emergency. We can assist you over the phone at 416-469-9754.
