Ms Sabina Shah and several of her friends at Oakridge Secondary School are putting together a youth group that “would meet once a week and run activities or games that would help provide [newly arrived kids] support and hopefully something to look forward to as they transition into their new lives.” What a terrific idea!
She and her group will be applying for a United Way youth grant to help pay for initial expenses.
What you can do…
a) If you know of a refugee family whose children would benefit from this, please contact Ms Shah directly at <email@example.com>.
b) If you have experience in applying for United Way grants, and could provide guidance/tips to these students, please get in touch with her as well.
c) If you are a high school student elsewhere and want to team up with these Oakridge folks, please do so.
