In a Canada increasingly characterized by diversity, it is imperative to address the challenges of pluralism in schools. We are offering four free workshops designed to help high school students develop their intercultural skills, through reflective and interactive activities.

Learning objectives

Our workshops meet the pedagogical objectives set by the Quebec Ministry of Education, enabling secondary school students to learn to:

  • Socialize in a pluralistic world;
  • Develop the skills needed to face this changing world;
  • Build an inclusive worldview;
  • Structure their identity and better understand those of others;
  • Develop the power to act.

Training workshops can be presented as part of several courses. They are particularly well suited to courses in social sciences and language courses. Teachers can choose the workshops that best correspond to the objectives of the subject being taught.

Here are a few examples of school subjects and some of the objectives that our workshops address:

Ethics and religious culture / Quebec culture and citizenship Think critically about ethical issues, practice dialogue, explore and study cultural realities.
Contemporary world Open up to the diversity of societies and the world, develop a critical sense
French Communicate orally in a variety of ways
