Newcomer Voices

Book a Speaker

The Living Library is a multi-modal storytelling and public education program that aims to share human stories of immigration and integration by highlighting diverse and compelling stories of transition, settlement and belonging.

Listen to our podcast series, watch our video stories, or book a featured speaker for your gathering, event, or classroom.

Newcomer Radio Group

The Newcomer Radio Group supports newcomers in Peterborough with skills and opportunities to tell their stories on their own terms via radio/audio production. In doing so, we hope to help diversify voices and perspectives in local media and arts.

Participants are offered 6-weeks of training in storytelling and audio/radio production and an opportunity to share their stories on-air and through a podcast.

Newcomer Leadership Group

The Newcomer Leadership Group is an 8-week leadership training program that supports newcomers in developing their capacity and confidence to engage in the community.

The Newcomer Leadership Group seeks to:

  • provide support to newcomers who are looking to engage as volunteers and participate in decision-making processes in the Peterborough community, and
  • expand the capacity for community organisations to include and integrate diverse perspectives in their practice.

NCC Young Leaders Council

The New Canadians Centre Young Leaders (NCCYL) is a Youth Leadership Council that seeks to empower youth in high school who have newcomer experience. The NCCYL offers youth a platform where they can discuss the issues that affect newcomer youth and explore their own stories while building leadership skills.

Each year, the NCCYL recruits new members who served on the council for the duration of the school year from September to June.
