Digital Stories Screening: Voices For Change

Voices for Change: Developing Leadership in Inclusive Education

A Casa-Pueblito program, Voices for Change: Developing Leadership in Inclusive Education, works to increase Latin American student success and retention rates by providing a space for  secondary students to champion  diversity and inclusivity in schools and communities through the Youth Change-Maker program.

This year, Youth Change-Makers (coming from both the TDSB and TCDSB) created digital stories to bring awareness to issues contributing to the shocking 40% dropout rate among Toronto-area Latin American students. We hope you’ll join us for a special screening!

The event begins at 7:00pm, followed by the screening at 7:30pm and Q&A with the Youth Change-Makers. Reception with complementary beverages and snacks to follow.

Casa-Pueblito is a non-profit, international organization that facilitates community development and intercultural learning with a focus on youth in Canada and Latin America.
