WE launches home educational program
Not-for-profit organization WE Charity has launched an online program intended to support student learning in Canada while schools are closed. Called “WE Schools @ Home,” the free program is an extention to the organization’s existing WE Schools distance learning service. The program offers daily interactive educational materials suitable for students of various ages, led by certified teachers and accompanied by additional resources. The program can be accessed at <http://www.we.org>.
“We've been inundated with requests from our 18,000 school partners and the families of their students,” said Craig Kielburger, co-founder of WE. “Our emphasis is on social and emotional learning, as we know that youth are experiencing heightened levels of anxiety and social isolation at this time and we must proactively provide support. We are providing turn-key programs to assist students to engage in virtual learning, find community connections, and promote their well-being as a complementary and supplementary program to their school-based distance learning.”
