In collaboration with the Rainbow Service Providers Network, the OCDSB invites all high school students to attend the 8th Annual Rainbow Youth Forum on Tuesday, February 26th, 2013.
A celebration of our diversity and a day to learn together, the theme for this year’s Forum is Our Families & Our Stories. Educators (intermediate and secondary) and students will experience two dynamic keynote presentations; listen to inspiring stories; and receive valuable information from a variety of educational workshops.
The Forum provides staff and students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and their awareness about equity and diversity issues, specifically concerning Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans, Two Spirit, and Queer (GLBTTQ) youth.
The forum is aligned with our efforts to embed character education and cultural proficiency into our daily practice, and it encourages safer, more inclusive school environments.
