Welcome to the CCR Youth Network
The NYCE project has been launched with 13 youth-led local projects who will discuss with newcomer youth common challenges they face in their community and find strategies, along with local stakeholders to tackle them!
A YAG is always a space created for and by the youth, that allows newcomer youth and allies to come together and to discuss common challenges and strategies to address them. It's also a two day of fun where you meet newcomer youth from across Canada!
Who We Are
We are the youth division of the Canadian Council for Refugees.
The Youth Network gives refugee and newcomer youth and youth allies a voice to address challenges faced by newcomer youth and a space to share ideas on how to meet these challenges.
The Youth Network works within a gender justice and anti-oppression framework.
The CCR Youth Network began in 2006 and has evolved through online discussions, teleconferences, the organization of youth-led workshops and strategy sessions and the development of youth-driven projects.
All of those actions were designed in order to give newcomer youth a voice and to address the many challenges that they face. Through our projects, we also wanted to promote artistry, confidence, and self-expression amongst refugee and newcomer youth.
