Join youth leaders from across Canada for a 3-part Master Class

Join youth leaders from across Canada for a three-part virtual Master Class focused on strengthening youth voice and inspiring change. Young Canadians have a vision for an inclusive Canada. Join this master class, facilitated by young leaders like you, as we explore the art of storytelling with a focus on social justice and inclusive community building. Everyone has a powerful story to tell and a lesson to teach others. At a time when physical distancing is necessary, we have an opportunity to think of new ways of learning from one another and creating a sense of community when it’s needed most. Through this masterclass, you will gain new skills for creating change and have an opportunity to think about what your experiences can teach others. Your story holds power and you have the ability to inspire your peers to realise their potential, act as engaged citizens and build a strong foundation for inclusion. We’ll show you how!
