Together Project works with our partners to host community events and programs that foster social inclusion.
Did you know that spring break happens in March so that people could make maple syrup? We learned this and more at the Kortright Maple Syrup Festival in partnership with the YMCA Newcomer Youth Leadership Development Program and COSTI Immigrant Services.
Together Project wishes to thank our partners, COSTI Immigrant Services in Toronto, the Cross Cultural Learner Centre in London, Catholic Centre for Immigrants in Ottawa, and the Thunder Bay Multicultural Association for helping us launch the Welcome Group pilot program in four cities in Ontario from March 2017- March 2018. A special thanks to the Province for their generous support through the Partnerships Grant Program.
Thanks to Kids Up Front, COSTI Immigrant Services and the Art Gallery of Ontario for welcoming refugee newcomer moms and kids at the AGO. The Yayoi Kusama room was a special treat.
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.
In partnership with The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, Together Project hosted the Succeed Through Service, Newcomer Hospitality Program in the summer of 2017. Through the generous support of The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints team, this program provided an introduction to the hospitality industry for 20 refugee newcomers ages 18 and above. The goal of this program was to help newcomers gain the skills and experience necessary to find employment in the hospitality sector.
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.
With Arab Community Centre of Toronto, Together Project connected refugee newcomers to six nature-focused festivals and events in 2017. Through the generous support of TD Common Ground, this initiative provided refugee newcomers and Welcome Group volunteers with the opportunity to discover Toronto’s urban nature and culture.
Together Project’s events and programs for refugee newcomers are made possible by the generous support of our partners. If your organization would like to get involved, please contact email@example.com.
