The Western Canada High School executive members of Compassion, Connection and Community Club (CCC) presented their work at the youth forum at the University of Calgary on April 8.
The club currently has more than 200 student members who have been leading a series of “pay it forward” initiatives in their community, including sandwich making for the homeless, volunteering at drop-in centres, craft-making for the YWCA for children and mothers who have experienced domestic violence and peer mentorship programs with other schools.
CCC is working directly with the Werklund School of Education regarding social activism, youth voice, humanism and community connection. Their work is exemplary and presents a strong vision for empathetic leadership and student voice.
