CIWA receives the ‘You Rock’ Award

20170501 125859

CIWA received the ‘You Rock’ Award from the Calgary Youth Justice Society (CYJS) in recognition of our work helping young people throughout 2016. This past year, CYJS worked closely with immigrant serving agencies to identify barriers in service and create a model of collaboration to ensure that the needs of immigrant youth are addressed, especially when they are in conflict with the law. CIWA became a primary partner in the pilot project to provide immigrant youth volunteers as “navigators” for youth who struggled with social isolation, peer pressure and have been involved with the law and the criminal justice system.
