   About the Position

Impact Statement
Volunteer Waterloo Region (VWR) supports over 150 charitable organizations in the Waterloo Region with their recruitment, retainment, and recognition of volunteers. The ONLINE resource helps local citizens find ways to make a difference by promoting local organizations and opportunities to connect to great ideas!

On September 10, 2022, Volunteer Waterloo Region will be launching an 'Invitation to Belonging', which is an in-person Youth-Led program designed for Newcomer youth and families in Waterloo Region to join cultures and families through community involvement.

During this program, we will focus on learning new skills, celebrating cultures, interacting with diverse Newcomer mentors/professionals, and finding out how different cultures can work together to create a more welcoming environment in Canada. Participants will also explore diverse life skills needed to adapt to the challenges Newcomers may face in Canada.

We will meet every-other week (exact dates are located in the registration form) in person for a total of 6 sessions. Orientation to our community, and multiple community resources will be provided in each session.

To make this program the best it can be, we need you! We look forward to reviewing your application.
