UBC Foundation and Ministry of Education Partnership Announced
ARC Foundation is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Ministry of Education that will support school districts and independent schools to develop their policies and voluntary anti-bullying programs by offering a new resource; the B.C. Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Education Advisor. This position will be funded for the first year by ARC Foundation starting September 2016, with the Ministry of Education providing implementation support.
This partnership is part of the SOGI Education Initiative.
ARC Foundation is based in Vancouver, BC.
We support projects that exhibit Awareness, Respect and Capacity in improving the status of those who are marginalized in society by sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or financial status.
Our current focus is the SOGI Education Initiative, a collaboration with other community leaders to create a school environment where all students can learn and develop authentically, free of societal bias.
