Volunteers Needed to Welcome Syrians
Over the past two months, the staff and volunteers at YMCA Newcomer Connections have welcomed more than 270 government assisted refugees to our community. As more newcomers continue to arrive, we need additional volunteers to form Welcome Teams to help settle the Syrian families.
Welcome Teams of three to five people greet the families at the airport, help them settle in their new home and provide support for our newest residents. Welcome Team members have a unique opportunity to see individuals experience Canada for the first time. Community members can apply as individuals and are also encouraged to apply as a team of family, friends or colleagues.
