Joint Project between Enactus Waterloo (University of Waterloo students ) and ShamRose Refugee Support Centre, a Sunday Youth Student Camp lasting for seven weeks would be organized to help new comer youth transition into Canada. The Camp Activities would include the following:
- Introduction to post-secondary education
- Exploring cultures through cuisine
- Building employability skills
Candidates of 13 years and older will be welcomed to join us every Sunday from Oct. 16/2016 to Nov. 27/2016 from 10:00 to 15:30 near University of Waterloo Campus.
This free of charge camp will be a great opportunity for new comers to learn about the Canadian life and awesome experience. Sunday camp designed for young Arabic-speaking refugees (13 years and older) in Kitchener-Waterloo. ShamRose and Enactus Waterloo have partnered to create this free camp. Through this camp, we want to introduce young newcomers to life in Canada and make their transition to this new country a little easier. Some key elements of our project will be a Career Day workshop and an entrepreneurial business workshop, through which the youth will be able to explore the countless opportunities available to them.
