SECTOR CAPACITY BUILDING IN THE WRAPAROUND
SERVICE DELIVERY MODEL FOR NEWCOMER YOUTH
This Regional 5-year initiative led by Centre for Newcomers seeks to develop sector capacity in the use of the wraparound service delivery model which aims to support the standardization and coordination of newcomer youth settlement services. The project is funded by Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and will work with settlement and non-settlement agencies across IRCC’s PNT Region (Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Northwest Territories) to build organizational capacity in the use and implementation of wraparound service delivery for newcomer youth.
The project will put learning into action. CFN believes that catering to the voices of diverse newcomer youth is a crucial piece in developing programming. Newcomer youth’s lived experiences with settlement will seek to inform the processes and programming that organizations develop; with the goal of creating a more accommodating and welcoming environment for newcomer youth to be successful in their new lives in Canada. The use of the wraparound process as a tool will help achieve this goal by allowing youth and partners to reflect and evaluate on their own responses to newcomer youth settlement, allowing for modification of practices where, and when needed.
