School Workshops and Presentations

LOVE Youth Leaders work in priority schools and neighbourhoods throughout Toronto. They educate their peers, professionals, and concerned community members about the causes, consequences and solutions to violence. Youth Leaders use their presentation skills and group facilitation abilities, as well as educational tools that they have created, to examine the impact of violence and share strategies for prevention.[/fusion_text]

Engaging New Alternatives

Thanks to funding from Ontario Trillium Foundation LOVE has been delivering a specialized Media Arts Program for the past 3 years in alternative schools around the Greater Toronto Area. LOVE is currently testing 3 models in alternative schools to focus on civic engagement, positive community action and leadership through media arts. Over 300 youth in 12 alternative schools have created media products – photography, digital stories, “fingerprint” stories and presented their products at community showcases where participants shared their learnings, educating the broader community on issues important to youth. 

If you are a teacher or principal at an alternative school and would like to participate, please contact Dena Henry, Program Manager at dena@leaveoutviolence.org
