The Youth Action Gathering

Printer-friendly version

What is a YAG?

The Youth Action Gatherings (YAG) bring together immigrant and refugee youth from across Canada to share, learn and together strategize about how to address common challenges. The YAG is a space where newcomer youth across Canada build a community of support that persists even when they go back home. 

See the eligibility criteria and registration form here.

This is what the CCR Youth Action Gathering is all about!

Why do we organize the YAG?

Although the CCR Youth Network uses different forms of electronic communication, the distance that separates us can sometimes be a challenge to ongoing and effective engagement. What we need to continue our momentum is to meet face to face at the national level.
