This workshop which will be conducted by Toronto Refugee Sponsorship Support Initiative (Toronto RSS) is intended for the private sponsors of refugees and will explore various themes including:
- Managing expectations: What are sponsors’ and refugees’ expectations of each other, and how can expectations be managed to avoid potential conflict?
- Code of ethics for private sponsoring groups: What are some ethical practices that private sponsors may wish to consider?
- Power imbalance: How do power imbalances affect the relationship between sponsors and refugees, and how can they be minimized?
There will be a total of 3 workshops conducted at 3 different locations across Toronto but all these workshops will deliver the same content. As such, private sponsors need to register for and attend one of the workshops only.
