The Board’s Catholic Parent Engagement Committee is excited to host a presentation by Craig Kielburger, the co-Founder of the WE Organization, WE Charity, ME to WE Social Enterprise and WE Day.

The event takes place Wednesday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School (2260 Courtice Rd.) in Courtice. The event, which is made possible by the Ministry of Education Parents Reaching Out Grant, is free and open to the public.

The title of the event is The World Needs Your Kid: How to Raise Children Who Care and Contribute.


Raising kids in a complex, fast-paced social world can be challenging. In this speech, based on Craig and his brother Marc’s international bestseller The World Needs Your Kid: Raising Children Who Care and Contribute, Craig will reflect on personal stories about his parents – both educators – and provide key insights on guiding children to be compassionate and engaged global citizens. This speech provides tips for guiding young people to be engaged global citizens, and is ideal for social workers, coaches, families, educators, communities, parents, caregivers, ECE workers and anyone who cares for children and youth.
