Youth Forums & Online Conversations
We believe in the potential of youth – which is why we are committed to programs that encourage them to investigate and speak out on today’s relevant topics. Experiences Canada Youth Leadership Forums and Online Conversations offer youth from across Canada the opportunity to lead and be part of an intensive ‘youth teaching youth’ experience.
These in-person and online programs aim to empower youth to be more involved in current affairs as well as support secondary school educators who are looking for innovative ways to support their online learning plans.
Black Lives Matter & Anti-Racism Conversations
Experiences Canada’s Black Lives Matter & Anti Racism Conversations series aims to increase the capacity of youth in engaging in Anti-Racism conversations by providing them with an opportunity to learn from emerging and established leaders and from their peers.
A series of 7 webinars are accompanied by easy-to-follow discussion guides, educational materials and resources from anti-racism organizations. A key objective for this series is to amplify the message and voices of the Black Lives Matter Movement and Anti-Racism Activists in Canada.
Experiences Canada has collaborated with Indigenous leaders, artists, lawyers, journalists, and land and water defenders to bring you a series of online events and resources to maintain youth interest and awareness in issues of Reconciliation. The speakers in this series have generously offered their time and knowledge to engage youth in a dialogue on the contemporary issues and challenges that Indigenous people face.
