For more than 25 years, The Circle Education – in collaboration with SD64 – has been offering social-emotional educational in- and after-school programs. In these programs, we provide kids and youth with important skills. Skills that help them to communicate in a kind way, to be respectful towards other people’s feelings and opinions, to show empathy, and to be open towards people who are different from them.

Thanks to our funders, donors, and fundraising efforts, The Circle Education offers these programs in School District 64 for free. If you want to support our mission – fostering healthy relationships in order to promote communities free of violence, bullying, discrimination, assault, and abuse – please consider becoming a member. Your support makes a big difference to the work we do in our community. Your membership shows us, and our funders, that our vision and our mission matters. By becoming a member, you’re letting us know that you believe that building healthy families and communities starts with children and youth gaining the skills and attitudes they need to create healthy relationships.
When you become a new member, or if you renew your membership before October 1st, you can attend a live video presentation, exclusively for The Circle Education, by author Tanya Lloyd Kyi about stereotypes.
Lloyd Kyi has written the children’s book This is Your Brain on Stereotypes; How Science is Tackling Unconscious Bias.
Identifying and questioning stereotypes, bias, and prejudice has been part of our educational programs since we started to develop our social-emotional learning framework. Lloyd Ki explains in her presentation why we have secret biases in our brains, how stereotypes can negatively affect people, and how we can help kids to be less biased.
This presentation is planned for October 26th (7-8 pm) but there’s also the option to watch it in your own time.
Members of The Circle Education also get 20% discount on our Working with Youth Training which is offered three times throughout the year.
Individual memberships cost $20 per year. Our membership year runs from September through August. To vote at our Annual General Meeting, your membership dues must be paid at least 30 days before the meeting. Our AGM this year is on Tuesday, November 21st.
