Skills for Change is committed to developing programs for immigrant and refugee youth and initiatives that will fully support their integration into the Canadian environment and prepare youth to become future leaders.
Our existing programming directly related to youth include supports for youth to improve their English, increase their knowledge of the school system (high school, college, university), homework clubs, settlement supports, peer to peer mentoring and employment skills.
Skills for Change is seeking submissions from service providers to design Youth Leadership training and train staff to facilitate the curriculum.
The purpose of this project is to fund the development and staff training of a Youth Leadership curriculum. The curriculum will be geared towards Refugee Youth ages 16-29 facing multiple barriers with opportunities to develop life skills, leadership skills and employment strategy skills, in order to successfully settle and integrate into the Canadian environment.
The curriculum should have built-in flexibility for adaptation into existing programming and must be designed to provide in class and online delivery. Each component of the curriculum will work together as part of an overall programme. In addition, each component should be able to stand-alone for inclusion in other courses and/or for use in both formal and/or informal teaching situations.
The service provider is expected to train staff to deliver the complete curriculum and adjust or add to the curriculum as needed.
