Right To Play Canada


Dear Sport,

As the school year comes to a close, we want to celebrate the tremendous leadership that students in this country are embracing in their schools and communities!

Thanks to you and the support of the Government of Canada, Right To Play is active in schools nationwide, engaging with more than 65,000 children from kindergarten to grade 12, to educate, inspire, and motivate them to be leaders of change through play.

We recently completed the third year of our Play Academy—a series of one-day workshops held in cities across Canada that bring together students from different schools to learn leadership skills and embrace their potential as global citizens.  The day gives students a chance to meet and interact with other schools, learn through play, and gain the leadership skills to run educational games for their peers. Students bring these new skills and excitement back to their schools to create a positive environment and inspire more children to make a difference at home, in their communities, and worldwide. Reaching students from more than 150 schools, there are countless inspiring stories about our next generation of leaders.

In Peel, Ontario, for example, we had an incredible group of high school students participate in the Play Academy. They created such a supportive environment for younger participants that by the end of the day, it was the primary school students leading the Play Academy games and activities with as much confidence as their older peers.

We watched more than 1,300 young leaders emerge during 22 Play Academy workshops from coast-to-coast.

Play Academy participants are now gearing up to mobilize their schools for Today We Play – our nationwide fundraising day! Students are organizing loonie & toonie drives, raising pledges, and creating their own fundraising initiatives in support of children in Right To Play programs worldwide. Then on June 9, they will use their new leadership skills to run Right To Play games and activities at their schools. Today We Play is open to all schools – information and registration can be found here.

Ask the students in your life if Today We Play is happening at their school! With your support, we can build young leaders by using play to educate, inspire, and pave the way to a brighter future.
