Sahra’s Story

Posted on


Sahra came from Somalia as a refugee in 2021, eager to improve her English and overcome the
isolation that many newcomers face when arriving in Canada. She started attending the Newton
Youth Hub where she was introduced to the REACH Program for newcomer youth. Through her
connections and supports from staff at REACH, Sahra was able to achieve her goals of attending
high school, finding employment, and making friendships. Through the REACH program, Sahra
completed the employment training program and 4-week work placement with a local fast food
restaurant. As a result of her hard work and dedication, Sahra was offered a part-time job, made
new friendships, participated in cultural activities all while attending high school!
