Syrian Newcomer Programs

Trudeau You Are Home

We are looking for mentors for these programs with Syrian newcomer children and youth!  Availability to volunteer during the school day is needed.

  • The Conversation Club Program supports Syrian newcomer youth (ages 11-14) at Glenhaven Senior Public School in East Mississauga.  The programs are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:50-2:40pm.  The program focuses on English language skill development, social skill development, learning about Canada and increasing peer connections across cultures.
  • The Newcomer Art Program is a mentoring program for Syrian newcomer children in grades 2-5 at Dixie Public School in Mississauga on Wednesdays from 12:25-1:45pm.   The program curriculum provides opportunities for self-expression, English language skill development and supportive interactions with mentors.   Syrian newcomer children are matched with volunteer mentors and meet weekly in the school within a supportive group setting to share creative art, drama and music activities.
