Next Generation

CLICK HERE FOR TEACHING RESOURCES & SUPPORT DURING SCHOOL CLOSURES

The Next Generation program applies our Mosaic Model of Dialogue to develop the skills and qualities in youth to become the next generation of leaders in conflict resolution, inclusion, and pluralism.

Through our in-school program, we provide students with the space to explore their own identities and biases, learn about the histories and cultures of others and to feel confident in their ability to engage in respectful dialogue and resolve conflicts. The Next Generation curriculum also helps students to examine their relationship with Canada’s Indigenous peoples and inspires them to activate their Canadian and global citizenship.

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.

Our award-winning culturally relevant curriculum meets Ontario and British Columbia education standards through activities highlighting leadership, critical thinking, and respectful dialogue. 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.
