About Newcomer Education Coalition

The Newcomer Education Coalition is made up of partner organizations that work directly with newcomer youth and families. The coalition works to create welcoming, inclusive, and equitable schools where all students are respected and can have the opportunity to flourish and achieve their social and educational goals in culturally proficient, safe, and supportive environments.

The Newcomer Education Coalition works with various stakeholders including community groups, settlement agencies, educational institutions, ethno-cultural communities, health and social service agencies, and government to improve the educational outcomes of newcomer children and youth in K-12 school system in Manitoba.

Our advocacy focuses on literacy, academics, and language (LAL), high school graduation and wellness, as well as ensuring that youth have the tools, supports, and opportunities to pursue post-secondary education.
