April 15: Community Roundtable to Improve Access to Education for Newcomer Youth
Information from FCJ Refugee Centre: With a particular focus on youth here with some form of precarious immigration status, this is the first of two roundtables to address the inequitable experiences of newcomer youth in Ontario high schools. This discussion will build on the Uprooted Education Project - a year-long participatory research project undertaken by members of the FCJ Youth Network, resulting in a recently published detailed provincial report card. We hope that the findings of this report card will highlight some of the ongoing disparities that precarious immigration status youth face in Ontario high schools, and engage community members, school actors and decision makers in collectively moving towards tangible, effective and appropriate responses.
Please join us for a short panel presentation, followed by a day of lively discussion, complimented by light refreshments and some artistic performances.
When: Friday, 15 April 2016, 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Where: Steelworkers Hall, 25 Cecil St., Toronto M5T 1N1
