UPCOMING ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS:
My name is Anna, and I am a Grade 11 student from Burnaby Central Secondary. I am reaching out to educators across the Lower Mainland and found your email on Killarney Secondary’s website.
I’m a volunteer at the Hot Potato Initiative Foundation, a registered non-profit organisation working to educate and engage young Canadians in the conversation about homelessness. We are currently recruiting other high school students across Canada to start school clubs or become Ambassadors until July 25th, 2020.
The sole purpose of the club will be to educate students about a range of social issues such as human rights and issues faced by Indigenous Peoples. The organisation does not solicit or collect proceeds fundraised by these clubs. Any money raised by your students will go directly into outreach initiatives they organise themselves.
I was hoping you would share this opportunity with your students, whether it is through announcements or your school newsletter.
