Thank you to our workshop providers for this morning - Lydia Collins gave our campers practical tools for combatting problematic language and calling people in, and @htbsle & @mandaa_lowe got our campers feeling creative with a song writing workshop! 🎶🎶🎶 #RockCampforGirls2019

Those are great guidelines, @MomentsWithBren!

Going to be great to see what Action Civics projects at created by those youth at @WoodroffeHS using those guidelines.

Started my week at WHSchool and the energy in this class is so positive. Brilliant students from diverse backgrounds including those with a hearing loss.
Glad to also have 2 interpreters/support teachers here👩🏿‍🏫.

Today we remember and honour those who have died and fought for our freedom, built peace and defended democracy. We are forever grateful.

Stories have the power to teach, influence and inspire and we've partnered with MASC and Ottawa-Carleton District School Board to launch SttARTs - a program that will help youth tell their own stories.

SttARTs (Storytelling through the Arts) participants will learn active listening, how to structure their stories and how to use non-verbal communication in presenting their stories.

Check out our latest blog post where we share more about the program!
