Our guests in this episode are Anna Hill and Andrew Lusztyk, co-directors and founders at Together Project, a charitable initiative on the Makeway Shared Platform.
Together Project connects refugee newcomers and Canadians to build stronger, more integrated communities. Together Project is founded on the simple idea that social networks are an important factor for integration.
We first spoke with Together Project back in 2019, about their strategy and goals for impact in community. Anna and Andrew introduce us again to the project and talk about how they adapted and innovated their welcome group program during COVID.
Moving to largely online connections has meant a significant increase in connections made and has taught the team about the potential and challenges of online matches. As things open up again, Together Project will be able to offer both online and in person matches aligned with people’s interests, available time and comfort with technology.
