CONNECTIONS: Be the Change


What do the following things have in common?

  • Kamp that is not at all like camping
  • “Drumming”
  • Giant spider webs
The SEEDS CONNECTIONS program takes place in spring 2020 (high school students are emailed an invitation with further details in late November each year). This multicultural and environmental leadership opportunity is for high school students who want to be part of societal change. This program connects students from across Alberta, and focuses on creating a better understanding of some of the societal challenges that students face today.
Vista Virtual School students will attend a four-day camp from March 9-13, 2020, at Kamp Kiwanis (more information will be provided to prospective students). Students also participate in a four-month campaign, completing a “Be the Change” project directed at students and the community. Students can earn up to four credits

The SEEDS Connections Program (Mar. 11-14, 2019): As part of the project work in this program, our 2018-19 attendees interviewed Alison Springer—a youth communications specialist—who spoke to students at the leadership camp this year. This “Be the Change” video interview project is broken down into eight topics/sections, and topics were published each week in June 2019.

Alison Springer is a professional youth speaker and trainer with over 20 years of experience working with diverse audiences and helping youth develop their leadership skills and self-confidence to change and shape their world:
