About the event

This roundtable brings together immigrant, migrant, and refugee youth and service providers who work with them to discuss their experiences of engaging in ‘active citizenship.’ 

This event aims to highlight how engaging young people in active citizenship has a particular set of requirements. Specifically, engaging youth needs to include creative approaches to participation like using art, sports, field trips, etc. This roundtable will ask speakers and participants to discuss how to successfully engage youth in active citizenship.
