Diversity Awareness & Skill Building Youth Program
Are you a passionate advocate for diversity & inclusion?
If you identify within the communities of women, indigenous peoples, visible minorities, LGBTQ2+, or persons with disabilities; the Diversity Awareness and Skills Building Youth Program is designed to set the stage for youth (aged 15 – 30) to pursue a self-directed volunteer diversity initiative!
Experience and Education
Interactive online zoom sessions to enhance your knowledge and understanding of diversity; from self-discovery workshops to guest speakers and more!
Increase your social network. Become an ”agent for change” while making lifelong friendships with people from diverse backgrounds.
Design your very own initiative, project, or campaign to address diversity/inclusion in your workplace or school such as rallies, anti-bullying campaigns, and diversity celebrations.
You will engage in mentorship opportunities to strengthen your knowledge of diverse cultures and collective identities, acquire the knowledge on what it takes to be a strong ally of community support for other marginalized groups, discuss productive ways to manage micro-aggressions and be your own advocate, earn a certificate and possibly work with your school to earn up to 120 volunteer hours and education credits.
The following are four of the amazing Capstone Projects completed by Diversity participants. Students have created a diverse range of projects, such as resource aggregate websites, Education hubs, Diversity and Inclusion bookclubs/discussion groups, Instagram and Tiktok Awareness Accounts, Diversity clubs within their own schools and so much more! Our participants continually surprise us with their innovation and ingenuity.
