Case Studies

An important part of the development of the We Belong: A How-To Guide was having a diverse group of organizations utilize the guide to develop and deliver after school programs to newcomer Canadian children and youth using an Asset-Based Community Development approach.

  • urban and rural programs
  • new and existing programs
  • physical activity and sport programs
  • children and youth from many regions of the world
