Young Voices Can! is an Ottawa-based charitable organization working to foster open dialogue, mutual understanding and inclusion among young people of different ethnic, religious and linguistic backgrounds.
While we focus on combatting islamophobia and anti-semitism, we aspire to engage students from all communities to increase their awareness of the important Canadian values of pluralism. YVC! uses a programme-based approach where young people develop conflict resolution strategies, leadership and global citizenship skills. Our goal is to bring together youth of diverse backgrounds and teach them to work, learn and build bridges together, in and among their respective communities.
