Will I miss school if I participate in this program?
There will be 4 Imagine NB retreats during each school year. However, each retreat will take place from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. This way, we ensure that Imagine NB Youth Delegates can continue to fulfill their student responsibilities while participating in all program activities.
What is the cost for this program?
Imagine NB is a program funded by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. As such, there is no cost to participants.
What are the dates for the retreats?
We are currently finalizing dates for each retreat during year 1 (fall 2017 to spring 2018). Dates will be published on our website as soon as they are determined.
Are participants expected to look after their travel?
No. Imagine NB delegates’ transportation will be arranged by the New Brunswick Multicultural Council. Each delegate’s travel will be coordinated with a youth chaperone per region who will be responsible for picking up and dropping off youth, as well as participating in a retreat.
