Join WUSC UBC & SFU in this online webinar and networking discussion sessions on Accessibility of Post-Secondary Education for BC Newcomer Youth.
Youth with immigrant and refugee backgrounds face unique challenges in accessing education: English language training, navigating through Canadian education system, coping with the stress of drastic change in the surrounding environment, etc. The COVID pandemic has also added another layer of technological accessibility issues. This event will seek to identify the existing barriers and connect those who are interested and passionate about this issue, in hope to formulate some practical solutions. WUSC would like to take on a program/campaign that may come about from the discussion next year with the possibility of initiating funding application.
