“Check Your Head facilitation training was a fantastic opportunity to connect with other young people wanting to take action on social justice issues, offering great networking opportunities and an inspiring space to share ideas. The facilitation training really challenged me to draw on my own leadership potential with hands-on activities and opportunities for self-reflection. I was able to build on my existing skillset and work towards developing valuable teamwork and leadership skills that I have been able to apply both at school and in my community.” ~ Youth participant
Check Your Head's work takes place on the stolen homelands of xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Peoples. We are committed to being in solidarity with Indigenous Sovereignties on their own terms.
