Active Citizens is a flexible program that helps youth build the skills they need to effect change in their communities. Active Citizens contains a set of workshops or modules that you can mix and match to create a program that fits a specific youth audience. With modules that focus on advocacy skills, local issues, and law as a tool for social change, this program helps empower youth to become leaders in their communities.
The creative work students have produced in this program has inspired many other OJEN projects, including Canada’s Next Top Law (a law reform competition), OJEN on the Air (a radio/podcast project), and the Great Debate.
