How we are working for change.


Mentoring for Change

Building connections and stronger communities.

Mentoring for change is a new workshop connecting newcomers to Canada with established community members. The goal of the workshop is to create strong relationships to help welcome newcomers and ease their transition into a new community. Each workshop will include discussion, interactive activities, videos or guest speakers, and of course great food! Come out and help make your communities united and welcoming!
