Our Program Worker – Settlement Worker in Schools, Constance Kendall, hosted a Talent show for the Newcomer Youth! On June 19th 2020, newcomer youth representatives from across the city of Toronto came together to share their talents and thoughts on these unprecedented times of the COVID 19 lockdown.
Youth displayed a variety of talents in this one hour zoom production which included dancing, singing, instrumental music and visual art displays. Participants in this online celebration included students and their family members, parents, Settlement Workers, agency staff, SWIS Coordinators and Managers.
All this was accomplished during this COVID season by youth coming together and sharing their talents to help encourage and uplift the spirit of others. This event was also the collaborative effort of Settlement Workers from the five Settlement Agencies across the City of Toronto. The agencies are CCS, CICS, Culturelink Community and Settlement Services, North York Community House and Thorncliffe Neighborhood Services
We thank and congratulate the youth on their performances and we hope that this will be the launch for future collaborative efforts amongst the youth and SEPT agency workers.
