Thank you for an amazing
2020-2021 school year!
This past year of school has been no easy feat.
We want to send a special recognition to all teachers, students and partners for welcoming us virtually into their classrooms. Navigating learning under COVID-19 has presented many challenges, and we appreciate your magnificent effort to continue community-connected learning at home!
As we close off the school year and begin planning for September 2021, we are sharing our end-of-school report that recaps the unique student projects that came out of this year and the exciting new program adaptations that will be available to teachers in September
In the meantime... deep dive into our two programs offered to teachers in September!
Active Citizenship Initiative
This year, we piloted a new 3-step version of the Active Citizenship Initiative (formerly our DILA program). The ACI is used in Civics classes and other issue-based electives to guide students through taking action on a social or environmental civic issue of their choice – from the cost of a bus pass to climate change to anti-racism.
Youth Active Media
At Youth Ottawa, we know the importance of digital literacy and its potential to improve lifelong learning. To become digitally literate, we guide students to develop technological skills, understand how to access accurate online information, and learn social responsibility while interacting on social networks.
