Refugee Resettlement Podcast – Episode 2

Welcome to the second episode of The Refuge in which we are joined by Praise Mugisho, a former refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo now living in Nova Scotia, Dr. Ifeyinwa Mbakogu, a social worker and Professor of Social Work at Dalhousie University, and Dr. Erika Goble, Associate Dean of Research at NorQuest College. In this episode, we talk about the experiences of refugee youth as they navigate the transition of settlement, school, and employment. Listeners will hear about some of the challenges refugee youth face at school and work, including racism, language barriers, and more. Our guests also offer suggestions on how service providers and employers can better support refugeeā€™s integration, careers, and wellbeing.
