In February, the Sankofa and Youth in Action programs partnered with North York Community House to start an after-school program for newcomer students at Etobicoke Collegiate. The Newcomer Club is run on Thursdays right after school, from 3:30 to 5:30.

During the first sessions, we have done fun icebreakers and team-building exercises for the participants to mingle and get to know each other. We have also agreed on the rules we all commit to following to make sure everyone feels included and respected. Also, we have done some activities that involve reflection and discussions, such as reviewing our 2019 and establishing our goals for the year 2020.

This program serves over 20 newcomer students who enjoy learning different life and leadership skills, as well as playing sports and doing crafts. It is always nice to have a safe and positive space where you feel you belong!
