Dear sponsorship community,

I would like to inform you about a project at the Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) called the Toronto Refugee Sponsorship Support Initiative (Toronto RSS), and invite you to upcoming Toronto RSS workshops.

What is Toronto RSS?
Toronto RSS is a City of Toronto funded project of the RSTP.

Toronto RSS assists sponsors to prepare for and maintain successful sponsorships by providing:

-         training for sponsors;

-         conflict resolution support to assist with challenging situations; and

-         mediation (with trained mediators).

If you are based in Toronto and would like any training, conflict resolution support, or mediation, please contact me at torontorss at rstp.ca<mailto:torontorss at rstp.ca> or 416-290-1700, ext. 404.

Upcoming Workshops
Toronto RSS is conducting workshops across Toronto about Managing Expectations and Sponsorship Ethics. These workshops are intended for the private sponsors of refugees, and will explore various themes including:
*      Managing expectations: What are sponsors' and refugees' expectations of each other, and how can expectations be managed to avoid potential conflict?
*      Code of ethics for private sponsoring groups: What are some ethical practices that private sponsors may wish to consider?
*      Power imbalance: How do power imbalances affect the relationship between sponsors and refugees, and how can they be minimized?

Private sponsors may attend one of the following workshops:
