Learning Outcomes

SKILLS AND awareness

Our educational workshops offer social acceptance education and Upstander action programs that combat prejudice and racism. They raise awareness about these issues, encouraging understanding and empathy, and empowering participants to stand up to discrimination and bullying whenever it occurs.

Students are challenged to question and critically reflect on their personal values and moral compass as they become more aware of the types of behaviour that constitute discrimination. The workshops encourage participants to reject passive indifference, in the knowledge that their actions can, and do, make a difference.

Our educational programs are geared toward students in Years 8 – 12. The workshops have been developed by professional educators and include audio visual components, interactive workshops and experiential learning processes.

We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor never the victim.
Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

Elie Wiesel
