The 8 weeks Newcomer Training Workshop for second line community resources is in its fourth week! The first week’s session covered the important topic of “Belonging in Canada” by Janet Howitt, currently working with Immigration Partnership. She was able to present useful information in a simple yet effective way. The second half of the session presented by MSS staff Bibi Baksh who spoke on “identity”. She gave perspectives on how to maintain one’s identity and adapt to a new identity at the same time, thus reducing the stress experienced by loss or lack of identity. The second week’s session was conducted by Jassy Narayan Onward Willow in Guelph, and one of the founding directors of Focus for Ethnic Women (FEW) in Waterloo. Jassay’s workshop dealt with the curtail concept of volunteering in communities. She skilfully related this topic to volunteerism in other countries, extracted the volunteering strengths of participants and showed how these could be transferred to the new community they live in. She also gave examples of how the training and knowledge obtained through volunteerism could transfer to job skills and open employment opportunities. Session three had four presenters, Sonya Medeiros an Employment Counsellor at The Working Centre, Lutfiye Tutak, an Employer Liaison at Northern Lights Canada and Jay Palani and Mimi Borooah-Pyattare employment counsellors at the KW Multicultural Centre. This week’s concentration was on employment and a wealth of information was presented. Participants learnt about different job search workshops, where to find resources and practical help and were provided with useful contact information. Part of the presentation dealt with internationally trained professionals which is particularly helpful to many of the participants. Today’s session will be done by Analuz Martinez from K-W Multicultural Centre. She will be covering Settlement and interpreter services. Our participants look forward to hearing and sharing ideas with her. Translators are available for these sessions! Please encourage anyone who you think can benefit to attend.
