e2 – Civics
A big focus of our Civics course focuses on recognizing our own power as citizens and learning how to use it to create change. The grade 10s are currently taking part in Youth Ottawa’s DILA program, which helps students find an issue they are passionate about and take real action to address it. Our DILA facilitator, Heliya, has worked with the class to help them brainstorm and narrow down the issue they want to tackle (gender and LGBTQ+ rights), and students are now at the stage where they are deciding how to take action. We are excited to see how this project comes together in the coming weeks!
