Podcast: Schooling and Youth

Tileira Abraham, Vethusha Vasanthakumar, Shaina Madden and Kevin Lyn  were interested in understanding the schooling experiences of immigrants who arrived in Canada between the ages of 13 - 18 years old and how their experirences in Scarborough affected their integration.  They found participants faced language barriers upon arrival, but those barriers were attenuated through participation in extra-curricular activities and parental support.
