Rising Up

We want to collaborate with youth at the MacPhee Centre to develop creative resources that will be included in the overall program. This project is completely youth led and youth driven, and we invite you on this journey of creativity, research, and learning!  Join us and we will explore our local communities and create art, poetry, and videos that will soon be tools for educators in the province.
