A non-profit community-based organization that is committed in addressing the immigration, integration, education, health, housing, social service, culture, and economic development needs of Somali Canadians and other immigrants in Canada through programs, service and advocacy.
Somali Immigrant Aid Organization provides youth between the ages of 15-29 with employment opportunities through partnerships with Canada Summer Jobs, Tropicana, and COSTI. This program supports students in the opportunity to shadow staff in different program areas of immigration, mental health, employment and recreation to gain future career-related experiences. This allows for exchange of knowledge in areas of Community youth may not have explored on their own accord. We hope to encourage creative and innovative contributions from each individual student.
At this time there are no available positions. Please check frequently as this may change.
The organization’s mentorship objectives for all student employees include:
- Developing and fostering increased learning and development opportunities for students by encouraging and supporting them to contribute, steer initiatives and lead their own youth-led projects.
- Building strong networks with youth and community-serving agencies, thereby further increasing the capacity of the student to build on their skills and aptitudes for their own personal growth and their community’s long-term success and development.
- Generate a sense of responsibility and ownership in the involvement of their communities
