Ignite a generation of change! JBG Ignite is a mass movement of our time that empowers young leaders of the new generation through a year long program called Generation Change. Students participate in educational workshops and activities that build community, leadership skills and challenge social justice concepts. These educational workshops and activities all culminate to an inspirational event for students in grades 3-12.
7 week full day arts based summer camp for students in grades 4-9. Grade 8 students can earn credits towards their high school career while building on their artistic skills. Students 16+ can apply to work the summer and earn a co-op credit as well. This camp is proudly supported by Focus On Youth Toronto (TDSB) and TDSB Continuing Education Department.
Our instructors create a space where stigmas surrounding race, gender or sexual orientation are replaced with unity through artistic expression among vocalists, dancers, musicians and art enthusiasts. Each of our instructor give youth the accessibility to freely explore the many facets of their creativity allowing them to be themselves. Hence our slogan – “Be You. BGRAPHIC”.
All of our instructors have their police checks, first aid and in-depth equity training, workspace safety and how to work with youth.
“It’s good to have something productive to do after school and to be able to learn something that I am interested in. Also, having guest speakers come in is great because they talk about good topics that are relevant to our lives”
“It helps me get in touch with both myself and my talent and helps me step out of my comfort zone. I came into this program as it is a growing process for me and my peers in an environment that make us comfortable.”
“This program is important because it gives young people insight to what professional people do in the industry, and can teach how we can learn from those people. Also, you learn new things about their work and talk about their future”
