Thinking of booking a workshop with Check Your Head: The Youth Global Education Network in 2015? Last year alone, our issues based workshops reached nearly 2000 youth across British Columbia.
Teachers and community organizers book our workshops to support youth in their active engagement in social and environmental justice. As youth ourselves, we believe a just and sustainable world depends on a generation of informed, empowered and active young people. It all begins, of course, with education.
Check Your Head (CYH) is a youth-driven not-for-profit organization based in Vancouver, British Columbia that educates and activates young people on various social issues. Founded in 1999, we encourage young people to understand and take action for social, economic and environmental justice. We provide education, resources, training and support for youth to live as engaged, independent and active citizens within our local and global communities. Our main activities include workshops, facilitation and leadership training, supporting youth-led social and environmental justice actions, and engaging youth volunteers.
