Seeds for Justice

Are you interested and passionate about youth empowerment? Are you looking for new ways to expand and apply your knowledge of social and environmental issues? Are you an artist or a storyteller, a musician or an actor, who wants to find outlets for creative expression? Well, Seeds for Justice is looking for volunteers! A project Kawartha World Issues Centre, Seeds for Justice is a youth engagement program that brings university and high school students together to participate in workshops, using visual and performing arts to explore issues of social and environmental justice. SFJ hosts monthly events that take a creative approach to critical dialogue, using theatre, dance, music, drawing and painting, mixed media production and teambuilding activities to explore the relationship we have with each other and our environment. Using a popular education framework, each workshop is designed to allow participants to learn from one another in a space while also assuring that participants leave with concrete ideas for action.

Global Youth Day Working Group

Every year KWIC hosts Global Youth Day (GYD), an interactive youth-led youth conference held downtown Peterborough. GYD is held at the same time as Global Youth Service Days, an internationally designated week of activities celebrating youth volunteerism world-wide. GYD brings together workshops and activities on a different theme every year. Each year the conference is organized by a working group made up of 10-20 youth from different schools across Peterborough. If you are interested in joining the working group and planning this year’s conference, or just want more information, please contact: youth@kwic.info. You can also check out pictures from last year’s conference!
