Dylan sharing @OttawaMission's impact on his past, present and future.

Inspiring to see how empowerment takes many forms. In Dylan's case, "chopping veggies" was the catalyst.

Today we wrapped up a project with the Social Changemakers club at Merrivale high school where the students have completed a mural entitled "Representation Matters". ⁣

Our Youth Engagement Coordinator, Jude, and community artist, Hasina Kamanzi, @ha.ha.ha.sina have been supporting the students as they discuss the topic of representation and what it means to them as students from diverse backgrounds. ⁣

"Over a few weeks/months we (the social changemakers) wanted to make something to represent people who aren’t usually shown or talked about in the media. We covered topics such as 2SLGBTQ+, Asian representation, disability and mental health, Muslim students, Black Lives Matter, and more."⁣

See the whole piece at our upcoming Youth Action Showcase on December 17th!⁣
