Event description

Description

Are you a Ryerson student who wants to contribute to social justice? Let us help you express and act on it.

The Jack Layton Leadership School aims to build the leadership capacity of students to affect social change. Over two days we will work with community members and faculty to engage in social justice issues through telling our stories, engaging in creative arts workshops, panel discussions, lectures, and community tours. Join us to network with leaders to work on a shared vision of justice based on anti-racist, feminist, Indigenous, queer, anti-poverty and reflective approaches. No prior experience is necessary, only a commitment to social change.

  • Learn multiple perspectives and approaches to community engagement from nationally renowned community leaders.
  • Build relationships as the foundation of collective action
  • Learn analytic skills to interpret power, relationships, and knowledge to support those most in need
  • Tell your story based on your own social interests and passions
  • Witness social justice work in action
  • Develop skills in critical self-reflection in the context of intersecting identities.

Students will receive a certificate of participation.

Schedule*:

  • Wednesday, February 19, 5 pm - 8 pm
  • Thursday, February 20, 9 am - 5 pm
  • Friday, February 21, 9 am - 5 pm

*Note that times are subject to change slightly due to the School schedule. Please check back for updates!

Those who attend the School will be reimbursed the ticket price of $20. If the ticket price is prohibitive, please email us at laytonchair@ryerson.ca and we can waive it for you.
