  • 13. It aimed to redefine leadership, create exciting initiatives, network with youth leaders, gain equity/inclusivity based knowledge and work on sustainability tools that will have a lasting impact on their schools and communities.
    It was part of the Ontario Ministry of Education Strategy because this year they challenged schools to redefine inclusiveness to incorporate all aspects of diversity and the schools are mandated to report back to the Ministry about equitable policies and practices that have been implemented for both staff and students, so this was a step towards this strategy because they provided tools to create an inclusive environment within the school.
  • 14. What do people have to say?
    “Joining Harmony has made me more confident because it taught me that I matter.”
    Grade 8 Student, McCrimmon Middle School Peel District School Board
    “Before Harmony I thought I was a pretty good person. I didn’t think I was prejudiced towards others and I didn’t know stereotypes existed in me…I found that I had a bit of each of them in me.”
    Grade 12 Student, Anderson CVI Durham District School Board
    “The Harmony Movement doesn’t offer a magic pill that changes your school overnight; it does better than that – it gives students the skills and the passion to work toward long-term, sustainable change. It empowers students to see, name, and speak out against oppression in all its complex and interwoven forms.”
    James Campbell, Teacher, University of Toronto Schools
