Passages: A Youth Awareness Event

Description: On Jan. 22, Northumberland Youth Unlimited hosted "Passages" at the Cobourg Community Centre, in partnership with several community organizations and churches. Passages is a youth awareness event for youth ages 14-19. Participants experienced the journey of the Refugees and for 2 hours, were given a glimpse of the horror, misery and degradation they are forced to endure, from leaving their homeland to settling in their new country - Canada.
