Train to be an Immigrant Peer Educator with this program brought to you by the Whistler Welcome Centre; practice your English, build your Canadian experience, develop skills for work and life, meet new people, and contribute to your community. Join the program:
  • 8 sessions, 1.5 hours a week (27 Oct – 15 Dec 2020, 9:30-11:00)
  • Improve your listening, speaking and English communication skills
  • Build your knowledge of life in Canada
  • Learn about services, resources and programs in Whistler from local guest
    speakers
  • Build a network with other immigrants
You’ll learn about:
  • Culture shock, depression, discrimination
  • How to solve conflicts with landlords or employers
  • Children and women’s health issues
  • Education or career planning in Canada
  • Local resources and services
After the program, we invite trained Immigrant Peer Educators to rejoin twice, in February and May, whether online or in-class. We come together with former program graduates to connect with one another and discover how others are working as Peer Educators in our community:
  • Supporting others in the community as a Peer Educator
  • Giving us feedback on what issues immigrants are facing, and what services and programs they need.
