Racial Diversity & Anti-Racism Statement
Throughout Nova Scotia and beyond, Black people, Indigenous people and people of colour deserve organizations, leaders, and communities that work harder to understand and address the systemic racism rooted in our society. We understand that we need to do better, to speak up and to take action.
As an organization, our students are at the heart of what we do and we are committed to conduct activities that will help our organization address racism and celebrate diversity in the days and years ahead.
Activities we will continue to develop and grow:
•Ensuring our students, staff and Board are representative of all races and cultures on an ongoing basis
•Participating in Culture and Diversity training at the Board level and bringing these experiences to our staff and students
•Conducting a Town Hall for students to share their lived experience
•Including Anti-racist and diversity focused programming in our camps
•Forming a Social Justice Committee which will be led by our youth to continue our ongoing education and exposure to anti-racist activities
Our vision is to inspire, inform and connect with youth across the province of Nova Scotia so they reach their potential. We must do our part to create a fully inclusive world so that all youth can reach their full potential.
