We believe that by encouraging youth to take action on issues that matter to them, they can become leaders in creating an accessible, inclusive world. You can help inspire the next generation of Difference Makers by sharing Rick Hansen’s story and teaching about the importance of inclusion.
Start meaningful conversations about disability in your classroom or home by using our educational resources or by inviting one of our Ambassadors to speak. Continue the conversation by celebrating the students, teachers and community leaders who are making an impact with our annual Difference Maker Awards.
This program is made possible by our Co-Presenting Partners, Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects and Scotiabank, as well as by the generous support of our donors.
Discover curriculum connections by province and territory, tips on strategies for an inclusive classroom, lesson planning for universal design, and more resources for the classroom.
