Zach

Zachari Leandre Max Keeping Award for Personal Courage Spirit Awards 2014 "Youth Empowering Youth to Spark Change and take Action" Zachari has worked very hard despite all of his personal challenges. He has encountered many obstacles in his life. He grew up with a single mother who worked two jobs and two older brothers who were in and out of prison. Gang life was introduced to him at a young age and when Zachari was young his brother was shot in a gang related incident. Poverty was another obstacle he faced. His family was often without food. They would have to go to the food bank in order to eat. At a very young age, he was not allowed to leave our house through the front door because his family was late on making payments. Despite not having a positive male role model in his life, Zachari knew he wanted better for himself. This is what has kept him on the right path and has helped shape the person he is becoming today. When Zachari entered grade 12, he was behind credits and considered at risk. He came mornings, lunch time and after school in order to get himself on par with the rest of his peers. His goal is to go to college and he is doing everything to make that a reality.

Sarah Tunstall Max Keeping Award for Personal Courage Spirit Awards 2014 "Youth Empowering Youth to Spark Change and take Aciton" "Working with the girls from the Pader Academy has made a huge impact in my life and inspired me to no end. Their resiliency and positive outlook have inspired me to make changes within my own life and try to motivate other young women." Sarah has not only turned her own life around; she is raising two daughters with grace, love and dignity. Her desire to make a safe and secure home for them inspires her personal courage. Sarah is graduating this year with an average of 88%, an accomplishment six years and six schools in the making. The obstacles that stood in the way of this diploma were considerable. At sixteen, Sarah's life quickly spiralled into a desperate existence. When her partner began to threaten their newborn, she left and asked the Children's Aid Society to help. She attended Operation Come Home and later St. Nicholas Adult High School. Just when life seemed to be becoming simpler, she found out she was pregnant with the second child of her abusive partner. Scared, but determined, Sarah deepened her commitment to qualify for the Respiratory Therapy program at Algonquin. She quickly emerged as a leader in our Embrace Your Future program at the Youville Centre, which challenges young moms to embrace self-worth and healthy relationships for themselves and their children. Her courage in these sessions and passion to change the cycle of violence has inspired other young women to take those first steps towards safety.

Megan Carty Arts and Culture Spirit Awards 2014 "Youth Empowering Youth to Spark Change and take Action" Megan is a gifted actor, puppeteer, and theatre creator. Over the past few years Megan has learned how to use her talent and passion for the arts to make a difference in the community and help people. This past January she started her very own theatre company entitled Cart Before the Horse and mounted a production of Joan Macleod's The Shape of a Girl. This one-woman show told the story of Braidie, a fifteen year-old girl whose social reality was filled with bullying, hierarchical teenage relationships, and manipulative codes of behaviour. The story helped Megan make sense of a lot of tough times in high school. Megan produced the piece as well as playing Braidie, the lead character. Her goal was to inspire a dialogue amongst young people and explore how their world has been expressed by playwrights in contemporary theatre. Megan is also a puppeteer for Ottawa based children's theatre company Rock the Arts. She performs four different educational shows for children year round all across Canada. The shows teach kids how to help the environment, overcome their fears, and be good people. Megan is a creative powerhouse who inspires everyone she works with.

01:53
For Youth By Youth News, Giving YOU(th) a voice in their Education The FYBY Summit will take an in-depth look at the education system and how it reflects the needs of youth and their unique generation. Harnessing media (with a focus on video), youth advocates (who have spent the last four months reflecting on this very topic) will use the day to showcase their perspective on topics important to them and stimulate thought-provoking dialogue. Educators and students are invited to spend a day reflecting on topics of education such as civics and careers, cultural diversity, stress, character development, image and choices. Adopting a mental health theme, this event will challenge all involved to think critically, in ways they have never thought before. The day will be composed of interactive presentations, social media outlets, mixed media creation, and various workshop sessions all facilitated by youth. Upon registration, educators will be given a DVD of all videos and guidelines from the youth presenters about how they can be implemented in the classroom.

Understanding FYBY - Overview.
 
07:42
FYBY News! http://www.fybynews.com Our goal is to create: A generation of empowered, critical thinkers that will use media to make their voices heard. What: FYBY News is a program of Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa. We provide Ottawaʼs youth the chance to acquire knowledge about issues, opportunities and resources relevant to them, and share this knowledge with other youth members through the production of videos. These videos are showcased live through a series of community events, online and are used by educators to enhance the classroom experience of a broader youth audience. How: We invite groups of youth (from community centers, high schools, organizations) to choose topics they care about and initiate dialogue and discussion with other youth, educators, and the community through the creation and presentation of their media product. We encourage youth to engage in a collaborative process with their peers while creating their media product which helps all parties develop team building and communication skills. Why: A survey done by the Ottawa Youth Commission, which amplifies youth voice in City Hall, found that youth did not feel as though they had a media outlet relevant to them or that they had a way to connect with youth outside of their school. Who: The organizing committee of FYBY news is composed of local youth with a passion for current affairs who believe in the power of the media as a tool for education.

Emily Renaud Arts and Culture Spirit Awards 2014 "Youth Empowering Youth to Spark Change and take Action" Emilly Renaud has been an outstanding member of the Dandelion Dance Company since 2010. Inspired by how art can be a vehicle for social change, Emilly shared her story through dance about the pain of having a mother addicted to drugs and absent as well as the pain of losing her sister to foster care. Her dance so beautifully illustrated the effect of trauma and how the hurt that she was feeling, felt invisible to others. It was shared at the National Arts Centre and at North America's largest education conference, 'Reading for the Love of it', in Toronto. Her passion for social justice and dedication to social change earned her the position of Technical Director of the Company. She was then selected to be on the Board of Directors for the Dandelion Dance Company where she continues to support initiatives that honour the voices of young women and provide life changing experiences for other girls. Emilly also wrote and performed a powerful poem, titled 'I Will Dance', which speaks about using dance as a medium for growth and breaks stereotypes about who can dance. This poem was published in the Pine Gate on- line Journal.
