Immigrant Services Calgary, Calgary, Alberta
RESPECT is an extension of the Mosaic Afterschool Program and focuses on healthy relationships for immigrant and refugee youth aged 11-13. Immigrant and refugee youth are often faced with confusing and difficult decisions because of their desire to fit in. RESPECT helps address these challenges through a series of workshop/activity sessions that explore bullying, gender stereotyping, and sexism in a safe and engaging environment. The program is offered in two schools with high immigrant populations, and will be extended to include a third school as well.
