Featured lesson plans

In partnership with RBC, we are excited to launch It All Adds Up, a diverse lesson plan package to help students learn personal finance skills and vocabulary to achieve their goals and change the world. Are you an educator who would like to take your class to see Spencer West and Degrassi on the We Create Change Tour? Click here to find out more information!

This year, on April 17, youth around the world will participate in the We are Silent campaign and stay silent in solidarity with children whose voices are not heard and rights are not upheld. In preparation for this important campaign, these lesson packages are designed to support educators as they dive deeply into children’s rights issues.

Global Voices

Global Voices is a weekly social issue based column written by Craig and Marc Kielburger with accompanying elementary and secondary resources. This unique educational program allows educators the opportunity to bring current local and global social issues into the classroom. The resources are developed to introduce topical and sometimes difficult issues through discussion questions, mapping exercises and issue-based activities. Sign up to receive the column and resources in your inbox every Monday during the school year.
