The TDSB is strongly committed to principles of fairness, equity and human rights. We believe we all have a shared responsibility to contribute to positive social change both locally and globally. Learning about and engaging in social justice issues (such as equity, diversity, abuse against women, poverty reduction and environmentalism) empowers everyone as 21st century global citizens.
The goal of our Social Justice Action Plan that every school will participate and report on one local action and one global action each as part of school plans.
Ways to get involved:
- School Visits/Speeches
- Classroom opportunities
- Experiential opportunities (both classroom and extracurricular)
- We Day – Fall
- Year Round Student Leadership Training Camps – (e.g. such as those offered through Toronto Police Service, Free the Children)
- Student speaking engagements
- Student leadership and mentoring opportunities
- Youth-led campaigns
To become involved in the social justice activities at your school, ask your principal.
