Peel Multicultural Council (PMC) was established in 1977 because of the concerns arising from a Social Planning Council report on Immigrant Needs in Peel. A group of ethnic leaders joined together to facilitate positive community relations. PMC is a non-profit and charitable organization that promotes a harmonious multicultural society and its key service pillars consist of settlement and integration of newcomers to Canada, neighborhood development, health and wellness, education & training and employment support.
The Youth Community Connections Coordinator perform as a member of the settlement team to assist immigrant, refugee and their youth in their settlement and integration process. He/She will conduct needs assessments, recruit and train settlement volunteers, make referrals, conduct workshops and information sessions, write letters and conduct one-on-one interviews with newcomer youth and youth. Individually and in groups, the incumbent will plan, co-ordinate and implement settlement-related activities and presentations for large and small audiences with the approval and in consultation with Manager, Settlement Services and other relevant PMC staff.
