Recreation and Leisure Studies 2016 Annual Workshop
This year’s workshop is aligned with The Framework for Recreation in Canada, Goal 2: Inclusion & Access. Recreation professionals, students and community leaders have a responsibility to address the principles of Inclusion & Access through their programs and services to create an environment that promotes: "Equitable participation for all, regardless of socioeconomic status, age, culture, race, Aboriginal status, gender, ability, sexual orientation or geographic location.“
Learn from one community’s experience meeting diversity goals; listen to the Niagara YMCA's Settlement Workers share their experiences as both newcomers and professionals as they help individuals adjust to life in Canada through recreation. Do not miss out on this opportunity to explore ideas around diversity, stereotypes, and prejudice, and discuss strategies for enhancing recreation opportunities for all community members.
Agenda and presentations from the 2016 workshop, Bridging Classroom and Community Learning in Recreation.
Hosted by Brock University and Niagara College in partnership with the City of Welland.
