By YMCA George Williams College

Social pedagogy is becoming a much talked about concept for those working with children and young people. This way of working suffers from having a rather cumbersome title but it is really worth getting to know what it means as we believe it is an extraordinarily powerful and effective way of working with young people and their communities.

Nonprofit With Balls

Hi everyone. A colleague asked me to write about what board members can do to be helpful to staff. Nonprofit board members are critical to the success of organizations. We rely on y’all for so many important things and are deeply grateful for all the time, skills, connections, and resources you give, especially considering that the majority of board members are volunteers.

The Case for Open Board Meetings

[source: http://www.imaginecanada.ca/blog/case-open-board-meetings]

By Elizabeth McFaul 

For many nonprofits, board meetings are closed-door affairs. Few nonprofits actively ask for opinions from their membership on a regular basis, or open every board discussion to outside participants. However, with recent discussions surrounding privacy, transparency, and accountability in the private sector, similar discussions arise in nonprofits.

Fighting An Uphill Battle: Report On The Consultations Into The Well-Being Of Black Youth In Peel Region

Source: 

"This report addresses the lack of opportunity for black racialized youth, as well as other racialized youth in Peel region, and examines their experiences with identity issues, policies, the economy and racism.I chose this piece because it details “crimes of opportunity” that young racial minorities experience, how they play out in Peel Region, and what in particular needs to be addressed and solved. One suggestion is to increase the number of racialized teachers. I think this is significant because it is important to have a teacher who can relate to your experience.
