About this project

SCENE (Social and Civic Engagement for Newcomers and Immigrants) provides newcomers and immigrants with pathways to equitable social and civic engagement voluntary opportunities through training, mentorship, nomination support, access to open positions, and guidance post-placement.

The SCENE participants, recruited in August 2019, have now completed their Board and Leadership training & they are currently in the mentorship and placement application process. Meet the Cohort to learn more about them, and their journey.
