Summer Program for School Aged Children
MJMC coordinates a program for newcomer children ages 6-12 to provide additional language skills, orientation, life skills and peer interaction during the summer break. Pre-registration for this program is necessary.
The program is designed to provide an opportunity for newcomer children to participate in activities that are culturally sensitive, age-appropriate, socially, physically, and educationally adventageous. The program seeks to provide a chance for newcomer children to integrate into the community by accessing mainstream programming and activities while feeling safe and comfortable with their peer group throughout the summer.
A huge thank you to our 2021 Program Funders, without your support this program would not be possible. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation - Moffatt Family Fund, Community Initiatives Fund, and Canada Summer Jobs.
From 2007 to 2017, we produced a bi-annual E-newsletter to inform our members and the community about multicultural issues, cultural information, member group activities, immigration updates and community events. Over two hundred and fifty copies were distributed at each publication. To view the newsletter archives please click here.
