Accelerating: Empathy

Presented by the Empathy Factory, Accelerating: Empathy brings together high school students that aspire to be leaders of social change to take part in the best experiential educational environment available to them.
Participants are challenged to devise a solution to a timely social issue of their choosing and make a pitch to other participating students. A team of 8-10 students will further develop each of the ideas that receive the most votes over a period of 30 hours.

In order for tomorrow's leaders of social change to learn, they must do!

When: Nov. 13 and Nov. 14, 2014
Where: World Trade and Convention Centre
Registration: FREE

The Participants (that's you!)
Good ideas need great teams, and that's what we'll foster at Accelerating: Empathy. With only 60 seconds to pitch their ideas, participants will have to be clever, and get the most out of each second in order to attract votes and other participants to their team. You must be adaptable, open-minded, and unafraid to make mistakes!

The Empathy Factory
We empower youth to take action and to make the world a better place. The Empathy Factory was founded on the belief that by instilling empathy in our youth, injustices will be stopped, communities transformed and hope inspired.

CCRSB is committed to full implementation of sections 24 – 26, 38 and 116 of the Nova Scotia Education Act which clearly defines student attendance as a responsibility that is shared among parents/guardians, students, teachers, principals, and the school board.

Effective September 1, 2011, CCRSB is implementing the Nova Scotia High School Credit Attendance Pilot in grades 10 to 12. This a two-year pilot, running from September 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013, where a high school student may lose eligibility to be granted credit for a course if he/she is not present in class for at least 80% of the course.
