About this event:

An evidence-informed, school-based intervention for newcomer youth (K-12th grades) to support their transition to a new school and community. It is intended for students experiencing psychological distress or difficulties functioning at home, school or in their community, often related to the adversities and trauma experienced during the transitions of migration and settlement.
