Together Project works with our partners to host community events and programs that foster social inclusion.
Thanks to High Park Nature Centre and CultureLink for including Together Project in a winter snowshoeing tour. Seeing the Great Horned Owl was a huge highlight. We also loved the campfire, hot chocolate and s’mores!
Inspiring words from UNHCR’s Representative in Canada, Mr. Jean-Nicolas Beuze, at our Together Project event, “Ready to make a difference in the life of refugees? Equally ready to change your own life by welcoming refugees? Get involved with Together Project. We can all make a difference and get engaged!”
We host community events in public spaces to welcome refugee newcomers to Canada.
We also work with our partners to host newcomer skills-building workshops and programs.

The YMCA Newcomer Youth Leadership Development (NYLD) program, in partnership with the Together Project, has launched a program for refugee youth aged 12-19 in the Thorncliffe community. This strength-based program offers youth the opportunity to meet new friends, practice their English, build their leadership skills and get involved in their new community.
Together Project is connecting refugee newcomers to six nature-focused festivals and events in 2018 through the generous support of TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
