Anne Frank Memory Walk Project: February 2015 – June 2015

We are pleased to be doing a second round of recruitment for the Anne Frank Memory Walk Project for youth! Our next trainings, March 7th & March 8th, will now have American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation!

Ever wonder how Vancouver neighbourhoods got to be the way they are today? Who names our streets? Who created our monuments? What history is in your backyard?

Become a participant in our program and you’ll find out! All youth 24 and under of various backgrounds (including but not limited to: cultural heritage, abilities, gender, age, sexual orientation, faith, and income levels) are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due March 2nd, 2015!
