#BeTheChange North Shore Pre-Teen Conference Posted on March 21, 2016 Equitas BC is excited to invite you to #BeTheChange North Shore Pre-Teen Conference on Saturday, April 16th. The purpose of the Pre-Teen Conference is to provide pre-teens with the concepts, motivation and strategies to be agents of positive change in their school, family, and community. They will be able to take a leadership role in creating a North Shore that is safer, more respectful, inclusive, cooperative and environmentally friendly. Children will learn about their rights and responsibilities through interactive Play it Fair! activities. Below is a video sharing the voices of children who participated to the Conference last year.
