Settlement Workers In Schools (SWIS) is new to Manitoba and undergoing a trial period, but is set up to help children better integrate into schools and their communities.
Regional Connections applied for the grant program seeing the need in the local area says Olesja Kraft, Settlement and Integration Coordinator at Regional Connections.
“A successful integration makes a successful person, and not only a person but an area. We had integration workers for year’s and years already, but we went a step ahead and asked for SWIS workers.”
