Below you will see some of the work that students in the youth group did throughout the semester. Each assignment was meant to build a picture of the barriers and opportunities immigrant youth may face in Kingston Galloway Orton Park and Scaroborough more geneally. Students began by researching and writing up neighborhood profiles. In additional to general information, their goal was to understand the types of services and resources availalbe for immigrant youth in the KGO community. iStudents then went into the field and conducted participant observation in public areas in the communtiy. The map below shows the Kingston Galloway area in Scarborough. The pins illustrate where some of the student observations took place.
