Have you ever heard of TDSB Welcoming Communities?
It is an awesome mentorship program for newcomer students in TDSB elementary schools, middle schools and secondary schools. Working alongside our program staff, and a peer mentor, newcomer students participate in a variety of group activities designed to help ease some of the transitional challenges faced when settling into Canadian culture.
Activities may include: homework clubs, English conversation circles, sports and recreational activities, a reading buddy program, steel pan drums lessons, field trips and a culturally-based culinary program.
