Youth Network News and Events

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 is open for migrant and refugee youth between the ages of 14 and 25 (and allies).
