The NewCan Students Rise Project is a new and interactive series of workshops provided to the Sheridan College newcomer student population. In collaboration with the Sheridan International Centre, MIAG has implemented this workshop in an effort to do the following:
- Increase community engagement
- Build friendships and build social networks
- Share experiences
- Connect cross-culturally
- Enhance support systems
- Reduce social isolation
This program will target certain topics of conversations such as mental health, human and legal rights in Canada, barriers faced by newcomers in Canada, etc. We hope that through this educational, informative yet fun and interactive program, Sheridan students will gain valuable knowledge and skills. This program also hopes to leave students with a sense of belonging within their Sheridan community as well as in Canadian society.
This project is funded by the Government of Ontario.
