About Flourish our Youths
Flourish our Youths is a workshop aimed at helping young immigrants who face disconnect and isolation find cultural and community empowerment. Its aim, first and foremost, is to create a space where they can openly discuss and validate their difficult experiences as well as be educated on the nature of different forms of racism. Secondly, it helps immigrant youths reflect back to their past experiences and build on their future goals. By integrating Flourish Our Youths into national immigration systems and schools, newcomer youths have access to a framework that affirms their place in society and empowers them to flourish.
