Intersections is an initiative to engage immigrant youth, educators, researchers, activists, social workers, policy makers, social service agencies, community-based organizations in a deeper exploration of the overlaps between immigration, gender and Youth. The purpose is to begin conversations across the community boundaries of scholarship and practice that shape the ways immigration and education are broadly understood; and to ultimately impact public policy, service provision and advocacy.
Each April Sauti Yetu hosts a learning symposium to share and network the work of those doing this important work. For more information about the learning symposium click here.
