The Multicultural Youth & Safe Relationships Project is an initiative that addresses teen relationship violence by promoting safe and healthy relationships, open and honest communication, and family closeness.
The project is specifically designed to respond to the unique needs of newcomer families from diverse ethno-cultural communities by prioritizing cultural sensitivity and language accessibility.
How to Participate
Multicultural Youth & Safe Relationships workshops are open to youth of all genders, ages 11-14, and their caregivers. For more information about the program and the workshops, please contact us.

Funded by Public Health Agency of Canada under the Preventing Gender-Based Violence: The Health Perspective program, the Multicultural Youth & Safe Relationships Project is an innovative pilot initiative that will deliver programming, as well as measuring the efficacy of tailoring this programming specifically to a refugee, immigrant, and migrant audience. In addition to providing direct support to program participants, a long-term goal is to utilize learnings from this pilot to inform and build ongoing service delivery in this area.
MOSAIC has partnered with Kwantlen Polytechnic University to carry out comprehensive intervention research alongside the workshop delivery.
