Welcome teachers and student campaigners! We are so happy to see how many schools and universities are getting involved in Moose Hide Campaign Day this year. Here you will find more information about youth workshops and teacher resources for May 12th and beyond.

Please feel free to preview all the workshops to find the one that best fits your classroom community, or work your way through all of them over the coming weeks and months. Our pre-recorded workshops are designed to easily fit into teachers’ schedules, while appealing to various age groups.

For information about the live Moose Hide Campaign Day workshops for the 18+ participants, please see the Workshops page.

We are happy to announce that more workshops will be added in the coming weeks. Tune back in to find out more.
Content warning: Please be aware that sensitive matters around violence may be discussed. Additionally, as an educator, we encourage you to preview the workshops before sharing them with your students. Some of the stories could be triggering for some individuals as they face the topic of violence. Some content is more appropriate for older audiences.

Please remember to give students context and be prepared to have open discussions with them in class. Many of the proposed activities in the educator guides involve action projects to encourage students to be a part of the solution. We recommend you have supports, such as a guidance counsellor, available for students who may need assistance or additional time to process. Please visit the Wellness Centre to discover other support resources available.
