2013-2015 Strategic Objectives
VOICES Canada is in the pilot stages of seeking and establishing partnerships with community service organization and public schools in Canada. The goal is to pilot the V4C:CAT teams Program based on the VOICES empowerment model in at least 2 schools in Toronto, Ontario in 2014. These programs will be implemented with a very intentional goal of developing and sustaining partnerships between Ghanaian and Canadian young people.
In addition, VOICES Canada is developing the blue-print for the VOICES Canada Training Institute envisioned for launch in September 2015. This Global Learning Center will deliver modules on developing skills for social change not only to Canadian young people but via satellite technology and web-based fora, to young people globally.
Finally, VOICES Canada will launch in June 2015, a 5 year fundraising campaign to fund scholarships for young people wishing to intern at any of the VOICES Country offices and or undertake post secondary education in a developing country to study global health.
