Researchers held 5 workshops with Somali residents in Toronto to discuss the urban health issues facing Somali youths. Both adults and youths participated in discussions offering different perspectives. Shared concerns included the quality of education, lack of role modeling/parenting, and difficulty in the job market. Youth and adults alike were concerned about poor housing, lack of resources in schools, and the low expectations teachers had of Somali students. The researchers used these findings to direct future urban health research. Following up on concerns about the education system, researchers partnered with scholars at York University to form the Community Coalition for Enhancing Immigrant and Refugee Education.
