    Right to Play's School Program: Play Your Part

    Right to Play is a global organization that uses the power of play to inspire individuals and unite communities. Right to Play utilitzes play and sport to help children in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and North America build their life skills. (see www.righttoplay.com for additional information).

    Play Your Part is a school engagement initiative offered to schools across Canada during the current school year (January through June 2017). The program begins with a free, educational and engaging school assembly recommended for students in grades three to eight. Your students will be moved by stories from children involved with Right to Play from around the world. It s an hour of interactive, multimedia learning that will motivate students to harness their own leadership potential.

    A one-day Play Your Part workshop subsequently helps selected students develop and harness their own leadership skills to create a positive school environment and translate their actions into global impact.

    The culmination of Play Your Part is a fun-filled activation, wherein students and teachers who participated in the workshop organize and host a play day or similar event for fellow students. Activities will be similar or identical to activities used by Right to Play worldwide.
