Inclusion project call out_Poster

Check Your Head is seeking youth participants (ages 16-22) to join our ‘Inclusion and Anti-Racism’ project! Learn about issues of migrant justice and become a peer educator with Check Your Head.

This is an opportunity for racialized youth – including youth who identify as people of colour, mixed-race, migrant, Indigenous, First Nations, Metis, and Inuit – who have experienced issues of race in their own lives, family or community history.  Through a series of workshops and hands-on activities, you will connect with peers to learn how to work together against racism.

As part of this project, you will:

  • learn about discrimination and migrant justice issues in Canada
  • participate in workshops on leadership, facilitation skills, goal-setting, and understanding anti-oppression
  • share your learning by participating in a community action group project
  • practice your skills by co-facilitating a migrant justice workshop
  • be offered guidance from active community members
  • be paid an honorarium after completion of the project

This project is a 8-month commitment from June – February 2016.
