Abstract

The city you live in has recently welcomed 20 refugee families. Recognizing the potential for sport and physical activity programs to provide youth an opportunity to integrate into the community, the city’s main recreation center offered refugee families a free one-year membership. However, despite initial uptake, many of the families have stopped using their membership. Recently, some forced immigrant (i.e., refugee and asylum seeking) youth have voiced a desire to engage in more sport and physical activity programs to their teachers who in turn relayed this message to the board of governors of the recreation center. The board of governors has tasked management staff with developing a plan for how forced immigrant youth may be further supported in engaging in sport and physical activity programming at the recreation center. Management staff have asked you to consult on how best to develop programs that meet the needs of forced immigrant youth.
