Later this week, community members are invited to connect with and learn from newcomer youth from the Immigrant Services Kingston and Area (ISKA) Multicultural Youth Group at a drop-in event at Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL).
Youth from the (ISKA) Multicultural Youth Group have faced many challenges along their paths and grow stronger through their experiences, according to a release from KFPL. Now, they want to share their stories with the community.
As one youth shared, “Each one of us has a different story to tell, but we all have something in common — no giving up.”
The half-hour one-on-one discussions are aimed at encouraging community members to connect with and learn from one another, the library stated.
Let’s Chat: Conversations with Newcomer Youth is happening on Saturday, Jun. 25, 2022, from 2 to 4 p.m. outdoors at the Calvin Park Branch. In the event of rain, KFPL said that the event will move indoors. Community members are welcome at this drop-in event, including teens, families and adults.

“Newcomers in our community have powerful stories to share about their experiences and dreams,” said Kristen Lemay, Acting Manager, Programming and Outreach. “We invite the public to come and sit with the youth speakers to learn about their lives.”
