Canadian Orientation Abroad (COA) Refugee Youth Project

Recognizing that refugee youth have specific needs and learning abilities that can be addressed during the orientation sessions, COA has developed a number of tailored resources and activities, including a Refugee Youth Curriculum and a Refugee Youth Activity Tool Kit. Today, COA facilitators can plan and deliver youth-specific orientation sessions; tapping into a variety of individual and group activities. Youth-specific sessions are taking place all around the world; in many permanent refugee training sites and mobile training locations.
