Visit our COVID-19 resource page for links and information on remote social support for vulnerable newcomers.
Together Project connects refugee newcomers and Canadians to build stronger, more integrated communities.
We match Welcome Groups of five or more volunteers with newly arrived refugees for social and integration support.
In response to COVID-19, Together Project is adapting our volunteer training to offer effective remote social support to vulnerable newcomers.
Together Project supports our work through evidence-based program evaluation and research to inform and improve our impact.
The third episode of Together Project’s podcast is now live!
In this episode, we speak with Maria, a refugee from Mexico, and Paula a volunteer who is working with Maria and her family on learning English and more.
