Private sponsors who are currently planning for the arrival of the refugee they sponsored are invited to a general integration training by the Office For Refugees Archdiocese of Toronto (ORAT).
Sponsors will have the opportunity to learn more about the needs of refugees and the best way to manage their expectations.
All while, building trust and setting the rules of support.
Participants will have the opportunity to develop tools for the successful integration of refugees.
Month 13 is a milestone in the private sponsorship program.
After all, it entails that the refugee will not longer get financial support from his private sponsor.
To help you prepare for that transition, the Refugee Sponsorship Training Program is organizing a webinar.
The following topics will be covered:
When should sponsors start preparing for month 13
The month 13 checklist and needs assessment
Unrealistic expectations from the private sponsor and the sponsored refugee can lead to a sponsorship breakdown.
That is why it is important to manage the expectations of both parties right from the beginning.
The Refugee Sponsorship Training Program is organizing a webinar to help you manage your expectations.
