Visions of the Future, The Making Of…

April 09, 2019

On April 11, the Durham Black Educators' Network (DBEN), in partnership with the Durham District School Board (DDSB) and the Durham College Rise Program, will host the second installment of Visions of the Future: The Making Of… 

Students in Grades 7-10 and their families will have the opportunity to discuss academic options while increasing their awareness of post-secondary supports and services. The goal of this event is to welcome students who represent the Black diaspora into the post-secondary environment. This is a free event for students and their parents/guardians, and childcare will be provided.

The keynote speaker for the evening is Owen Reid. Reid is a school board social worker and private therapist who works with children and families in the Durham Region and Greater Toronto Area. Students are also invited to participate in either the Chemical Lab or Water Quality workshops, which will increase their awareness of post-secondary options in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
