Fresh Voices is helping to host the 2015 Youth Action Gathering on Saturday October 2nd and Sunday October 3rd in Vancouver. This will be a really important and fun way to get involved in creating new ways to improve the experiences of all newcomer youth to Canada.
If you are thinking about attending the Youth Action Gathering, don’t forget to check out the 2015 Fresh Voices B.C. Awards and the 2015 National Fresh Voices Artivism Award - a Friday night out to celebrate the achievements of young immigrants and refugees, and a great way to start your Youth Action Gathering weekend.
Open to 16 to 25 year olds from across Canada
The Canadian Council for Refugees, in partnership with Fresh Voices and MOSAIC, invite all newcomer youth from across Canada to participate in the 2015 Youth Action Gathering Conference.
The gathering brings together young immigrant and refugee leaders to learn, share, network and collaborate on actions towards common challenges and experiences of newcomer youth communities. It is also an engaging weekend of leadership and skills building, developing peer relationships and fun.
Priority spaces for racialized and immigrant refugee youth
Everyone is welcome to apply; however, space is limited and priority will be given to:
- Racialized* immigrant and refugee youth
- Immigrant & refugee youth from across Canada, aged 16 to 25 years
- Those who can make a commitment to attend the full event
- Youth settlement workers and allies.
*We recognize that race is a social construct, people as "racialized immigrant person" or "racialized people" are immigrants who also belong to a "racial minority", "visible minority", or are seen as "people of colour" or "non-White" (adjusted from OHRC).
