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 intended impact.
We are thrilled to announce our new Mississauga Welcome Group Program to match vulnerable newcomers with Welcome Group volunteers for six months of social and integration support. We are currently recruiting and training committed volunteers to offer remote social support to refugee newcomers in Mississauga. Together Project gratefully acknowledges the support of the Pendle Fund at the Community Foundation of Mississauga, a registered charitable foundation serving the people of Mississauga.
We stand in solidarity with the Black community. #BlackLivesMatter #StandTogether #EqualityMatters
Together Project is pleased to be collaborating with Dr. Victoria Esses and Maria Besselink from Western University and the Pathways To Prosperity – P2P on a longitudinal study examining the experiences, challenges and successes of volunteers in the Welcome Group program. This is an exciting opportunity to gather more information about our program and the many volunteers who make it work. We are hoping to include 100-200 volunteers in the study.
