WRAP is a network of individuals committed to assisting local refugees from Burma achieve sustainable self‐reliance through mentoring, advocacy and providing material support as needed. Our primary goal is to assist our friends from Burma in attaining economic independence, establishing a true community and learning how to access services. We are an independent non‐profit organization that works to complement and augment the efforts of other organizations and individuals assisting resettled refugees.
WRAP is back for the school year! (Please note the new location for our classes)
(Update: When you come for WRAP classes, please use the after-hours entrance in the back of the building on High St)
Dear WRAP community,
As school begins next week we are planning to to resume our Monday and Thursday evening activities for ESL tutoring and homework help. We will begin on September 4th, 6-7:30pm, and continue every Monday and Thursday. We will be closed on public holidays and school holidays. We will have a flu clinic on October 27th.
Take note: we will be meeting at a new location! The Southeast Asian Coalition (SEAC) has generously offered their space downtown in the Denholm Building across from City Hall at 484 Main St, Ste 400. There is free parking in the back adjacent to the Fanning Building. Please enter through the back door after 6pm.
We will have a new volunteer orientation September 18th, 6:30-7:30pm, at SEAC. Please spread the word and invite any newcomers who might be interested in joining. We are always looking for more volunteers!
