Welcome to the eighth episode of The Refuge in which we discuss the importance of involving youth in research and community programs. This episode speaks to researchers, community organizations, and service providers - anyone concerned with the settlement and wellbeing of youth with refugee experience.

Our guests for this episode include Fawziah Alkmaki - a PhD Candidate at Western University; Fawziah’s primary research interest is health and social inequalities in disadvantaged populations; Mahmoud Sayed - originally from Afghanistan, he came to Canada in 2015 and has been working with the Youth Outreach team at the YMCA Centre for Immigrant Programs for 5 years; and Abdul Alsaidan - Child and Youth Settlement Manager at the YMCA Centre for Immigrant Programs; raised in the Middle East, U.S., and Australia, Abdul believes that there is no “one size fits all” approach to successful newcomer youth programs.
