As a result of the pandemic, the program is currently running virtual activities as well as facilitating meaningful volunteer engagement opportunities to support young people during these challenging times. Through a hybrid of both online and offline activities and workshops, we’ve created safe virtual spaces in our new normal and continue to provide excellent settlement experiences for young people.
