“Facing the Future Together”
"The Re:Action4Inclusion movement is a movement of young people and their adult allies that puts youth voice and experience at the center of social justice, community change and school culture. It is a movement of youth for youth that want to challenge society to change the way it approaches diversity and inclusion."
This youth-driven advocacy movement sseeks to empower young people to take action both individually and collectively, in order to make their schools and communities a more inclusive place to be. This movement was started after young people were inspired to create real social change. Along with the support of adult allies, the Re:Action4Inclusion movement is rewriting the narrative of disability held by our society and encouraging communities to embrace young people as leaders.
Between October 4th-6th, 75 young people gathered at the Intervarsity Pioneer Camp in Port Sydney Ontario for a weekend-long summit, jammed packed with keynote speakers, leadership workshops and team building activities. Cam's Kids was fortunate to join this movement by talking to youth about how we can make a difference in our communities to be more open about mental health. While working through workshops and team building activities, Cam's Kids was able to give some insight to discuss how to end the stigma behind those that struggle with anxiety and mental health. What a great opportunity for Cam's Kids to connect with youth across Ontario, especially the Northern community.
Thank you to the event organizers for planning such a powerful and groundbreaking event that will reframe the current understanding of ‘community’, and will help build neighbourhoods where all young people can thrive. We were honoured to be able to join so many young people and adult allies to help foster a new generation of changemakers!
We are so excited to see what these young leaders are going to do in their communities and beyond!
