    Adventures in Citizenship (AIC)

    Since 1951 this annual event provides a unique opportunity for a selected group of young Canadians to come together to gain a better understanding of our country. Through meetings with political leaders, senior officials and others, they learn a great deal about the workings of our democratic institutions. Through meeting one another and having discussions among themselves, they learn to appreciate the diversity of Canada and the privileges and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship. Applications will be posted in January and the event typically occurs in late April-early May.

    Rotary Adventure in Human Rights (RAHR)

    The new Rotary Adventures in Human Rights program which is a collaborative effort with the Rotary World Peace Partners and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The mandate and goal of the program is to provide students with an opportunity to explore human rights issues within the Canadian Museum for Human Rights by focusing on the following three themes: Women’s Rights, Indigenous’ Rights and Democratic Rights. Although the majority of the program will be held at the Museum there will be visits to various non-governmental organizations and Winnipeg locations in order to see positive action in progress in the area of human rights. At the end of the program, students will have an opportunity to design an action plan that they could implement within their schools. Applications will be posted in March and the event typically occurs in August.

    Due to COVID Adventures in Human Rights is postponed until further notice.
