You Belong Student Summit
We take seriously our responsibility to protect the health and safety of our students and share in our communal responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19 where possible. In addition to temporarily closing the school, we very reluctantly must cancel or postpone some important events. The You Belong Summit has been postponed until Fall 2020.
This spring, BSS will host the You Belong Summit, a student-led leadership and diversity conference for independent school students in Grades 8 -12 from the Greater Toronto Area.
Inspired by the NAIS People of Color Conference, the summit aims to create a safe space for young people with broad and different perspectives to share, collaborate and learn from one another’s experiences. Students will build on their skills and be empowered to lead their own schools toward becoming more inclusive and diverse.
Interested students can register at youbelong.bss.on.ca.
Students are also encouraged to sign up to facilitate a workshop on topics such as microaggressions, beauty standards, overcoming language barriers, using reclaimed words, colonialism, allyship or code-switching. To learn more and sign-up, visit youbelong.bss.on.ca/the-summit/workshops.
