Surrey Refugee Youth Team Hosts Forum at City Hall
December 10, 2018

On December 8, the Surrey Refugee Youth Team hosted the first Surrey Refugee Youth Forum at City Hall. The event featured an inspirational keynote presentation and workshop by Poet Laureate Ahmed “Knowmadic” Ali who joined us all the way from Edmonton, AB for the day; a multicultural fashion show featuring members of the Surrey Refugee Youth Team; and roundtable discussions where participants shared their settlement and integration experiences as well as ideas for making Surrey more welcoming and inclusive for refugee youth. Stay tuned for our report, coming out in February!
