Dear colleagues, I am writing in regards to a resource that we have developed in Canada for our youth so they can develop an understanding of our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Youth Guide to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a bilingual Guide and Poster which interprets the Canadian Charter in plain, child friendly language and targets youth in the 12 to 16 year age range. Winning youth art illustrate the document and it has been widely distributed throughout Alberta and Canada. The hope is that this publication will significantly contribute to a better understanding of the Canadian soul to be nurtured in future by the youth of today. The Youth Guide is a product of the belief shared by its sponsors that informed Canadian youth will strive to ensure that constitutional values are more than abstract principles. Rather, these values serve to define the Canadian experience and Canadian life enjoyed by all of us. With that objective in mind, it is hoped that this youth guide will assist youth in the acquisition of a greater understanding and appreciation of the heritage that belongs to all generations of Canadians. You can download the guide at http://johnhumphreycentre.org/guide.htm (in English and French) We have found this resource to be in very high demand and teachers and trainers (social workers and others) have found it to be very useful.
