|It’s that time of year again, #KidsTakeOver!! This opportunity for young people to take over helps foster belonging and the the idea that children and youth feel valued, heard and included.
November 20th is National Child Day and just like in previous years, UNICEF has launched #KidsTakeOver, an initiative to make National Child Day stand out and give children and youth all over the world a voice. Last year, young people in Waterloo Region took over, thanks, in part to the efforts of our partners.
From taking over as Waterloo Mayor, Principal, and Chief of Police, to being interviewed on 570 NEWS with Mike Farwell and taking over programming at the Waterloo Public Library, young people in Waterloo Region had some really great opportunities.
