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.  The Rick Hansen Foundation School Program offers free educational resources for youth in kindergarten to grade twelve, developed by educators for educators. 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 and partners. In both English and French, our ready-made lesson plans incorporate Universal Design principles and are connected to provincial curriculums and educational priorities across Canada.
