Organization: Vancouver Immigrant Youth (VANITY) Blog
We use the stories and experiences of immigrant and refugee youth in Vancouver to inspire other young people who just newly arrived in Canada. We help newcomer youth through three main ways: maintaining a blog website for newcomer youth, organizing events for youth immigrants, and interacting with youth immigrants through social media.
As an executive board member of VANITY blog, you will be a part of a group who will be chiefly responsible in developing, managing, and improving our blog website. You will be constantly working with other 6-8 students to guarantee that our blog site remains appealing to young audiences, make sure that each blog post published is exciting to read, and see to it that our site becomes known by numerous students who are just starting to settle in their new lives here in Canada. This could involve having a group meeting once a month, holding weekly Skype and Facebook conversations to update each other, and having an exclusive access to our blog account.
Aside from being a blog site, VANITY Blog is also known for building communities through conducting workshops, organizing events, and reaching out to youth through our social media channels.
