Harmony Movement’s interactive and innovative school programs confront prejudice in our society; teach the value of embracing and respecting differences; and help build a positive school climate. Diversity education programs and workshops can be customized depending on your school’s needs. Harmony Movement will also create one or multi-day conferences or off-site retreats to address specific topics and meet the needs of your school, board, organization or community.
Social Changemakers Leadership Program (SCLP)
Designed for grades 7-12, this two-day experiential program for up to 30 students engages participants through games, multi-media activities and impactful group discussions. Students will increase their awareness of personal bias and discrimination, explore concepts of power and privilege, and create action plans for safer and more inclusive school communities.
Race and Racism – Igniting Student Voice
This exciting new program offering empowers students to become advocates for social change in the context of race and racism. In a one-day conference for up to 100 students or a two-day leadership program for up to 30 students, participants will critically explore identity, advocacy and allyship skill building, sharing and respecting lived experiences, deconstructing discrimination, and building skills for transformative conversations.
Social Changemakers Leadership Conference / Retreat (SCC)
Designed for up to 100 students in grades 7-12, Harmony Movement offers a one-day or multi-day equity leadership conference/retreat. The SCC includes a keynote address, breakout sessions, along with games and experiential learning activities. Students will uncover equity gaps in their schools and communities while also planning social change initiatives to take back with them. The SCC format is available for a single school, a board hosting multiple schools, or a region hosting multiple boards.
Designed for up to 30 participants, these half-day workshops cover a variety of equity-related topics for students in grades 4-12. Workshops are tailored to meet the specific needs of your school. Please contact us if you would like more information about bringing a diversity workshop to your school.
Whole School Approach
Harmony Movement will provide consultation and strategic planning for school administration to develop a multi-semester program that is sustainable, engaging and transformative. The approach will bring together many or all of the components from our programs and conferences, with emphasis on the aspects of student leadership, peer-mentorship, and program legacy. It can also be combined with appropriate levels of equity training for administrators, educators and staff.
SHSM Non-Profit Training
Designed for students enrolled in the SHSM Non-Profit program, these sessions focused on professional practice are specifically catered to fulfill either the compulsory ‘Ethical Considerations’ training requirement or the ‘Equity and Inclusion’ elective training option. Participants must complete an assessment of learning at the end of the program and successful participants will receive a certificate of completion.
This half-day program is designed to support students in creating and implementing sustainable initiatives for safer and more inclusive schools. A Harmony Movement facilitator will work with a group of students to identifying issues to be addressed, resources required and available, steps involved in taking action, and distribution of tasks and responsibilities. The half-day action planning program is followed by up to eight hours of consultation and implementation support via Skype.
