Common Grounds is run in partnership with Wesley Urban Ministries’ Neighbourhood and Newcomer Services program.
Common Grounds student volunteers meet with newcomer Syrian refugees in cafés, engaging them in conversation and companionship. The goal is to help them improve speaking skills and to help them feel a sense of inclusion and connection within their community.
We will be meeting at Wesley every Tuesday from 3:30-5:00pm
