AnTI-RacIsm Inclusion & Diversity Education Program
(AIDE)

Anti-racism Inclusive Diversity Education (AIDE) is a project which supports the education of youth on issues of inclusion and diversity. Participants are engaged in conversations about anti-racism, inclusion, and diversity.

 

The project employs and trains youths to develop a series of workshops, programs, and activities to support the goal of reducing the impact of racism in their schools and communities and by extension Canada while advancing broader cultural understanding and appreciation for diversity.

The AIDE team is working on creating materials for anti-racism, diversity, and inclusion education for children and youth. We will be hosting a youth conference in Feb 2024!

camp power to be jamaica

Camp Power to Be started out as a small program in 2010.

In our first year, we provided space for 36 children and implemented the camp in an open field area.

Since then, we have expanded the program to provide services for youth between the ages of 6 and 18 at Negril All Ages School in Negril, Westmoreland.

Mt. Airy Primary and Infant School, located about 20 minutes from Negril, is the new site for the program for July 2023.

Renewing and restoring Camp Power to Be after a three-year hiatus brought on by the impact of COVID-19

 

We are pleased to be restarting this program in Jamaica with our flagship Literacy and Leadership Camp. Our program at Mt. Airy Primary and Infant School will begin with two streams that concentrate on different aspects of child and youth development with a focus on literacy and leadership.


• Literacy Stream (6 to 11 years old)
• Leadership Stream (12 to 14 years old)
