Racing Readers: Making an Impact

“It’s a tangible way to actually see the impact that you make. I think it’s one thing to read reports and look at quantitative data about the impact that you can make in a community, it’s quite another to see the look of inspiration and gratitude in a child’s eyes.”

Racing Readers: Creating Connection

“A lot of the students were Indo-Canadian, and a lot of the volunteers were as well. I think that it was really cool for the students to see people that looked like them in these mentorship roles that weren’t their teachers or their parents. I think it provided those kids with a positive role model.”

Getting your Idea off the Ground

Building Community

“So to me, meaningful engagement means the transfer of power. Power can be the power to make decisions, power can be the power to distribute resources, the power to envision a future. If power is not transferred, engagement is not meaningful.”

Making Space

“After I heard the first survivor share her poem, I went up to her and said 'I believe you'. I said it again and then asked the audience to say it back. I think that's a really powerful statement especially in the setting we created. So often survivors are not sharing their stories and it is often because they have a fear of not being believed.”
