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

LOVE delivers a specialized Media Arts Program in alternative schools in the Greater Toronto Area. LOVE’s programs in alternative schoolsfocus on civic engagement, positive community action and leadership through media arts. Youth build skills, confidence and community during these workshops. Youth create 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. 

“This is one of the best programs I have had work with my students in my 16 year teaching carrer. They are hands on, engaging,  timely and (they) care.” – Etobicoke Year Round Alternative Centre (EYRAC)

“Your staff have made an indelibly positive mark on the lives of our students… you made everyone feel welcome and the photographs were a great record of an unforgettable day. Many parents shared glowing comments. These are moments educators of all stripes live for. By the end of the day I had tears in my eyes reflecting on the success of the project.” – Barrhead/WRAP
