The See Different program is intended to support youth in valuing and embracing diversity and inclusion.
Participants will explore how their identity impacts their personal worldview. The program enables youth to reflect upon how asserting one’s identity can sometimes lead to bias, and how stereotypes can influence our perceptions of others that cause prejudice and acts of discrimination. By the end of this program, youth will be able to define and identify personal bias, potentially held stereotypes, prejudices, and acts of discrimination. They will develop a critical awareness of how these beliefs and behaviours can be deconstructed and altered to work towards ending exclusionary and hurtful situations and environments. They will learn strategies to challenge their personal biases.
See Different covers the following topics:
• Equality vs. Equity
