Fostering Agents of Change
Following the core curriculum, students have an opportunity to showcase their newly gained knowledge through the development and implementation of social action projects. These student-led initiatives are a way for participants to help others, build relationships and collaborate to have a material impact on dismantling prejudice in their school and in the broader community.
Whether it is learning about population history through the story of the Komagata Maru or analyzing socio-economic trends through shadeism, these students are engaging in critical conversations about what it means to be a young Canadian – developing ideas and skills they will carry with them through their high school experience and beyond.
