Event description

Description

RSTP invites new and experienced sponsors to attend a free Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) workshop exploring the following themes of post-arrival settlement and integration matters:

Settlement challenges and best practices: Approaches to plan for the successful settlement support of sponsored newcomers, including preparing for the end of sponsorship.

Ethical considerations in sponsorship: Understanding the role of sponsors in the sponsorship-newcomer relationship, and how power balances can be minimized.

Managing expectations: What expectations do sponsors and newcomers have of each other, and how can expectations be managed to avoid potential conflict, and facilitate successful sponsorship?

Programs and support available to sponsored newcomers throughout the sponsorship, and starting with Month 13

Refreshments provided!
