Welcome to the CCR Youth Network

 

 

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.
