Student

Schools are supposed to be about supporting kids, ALL kids, and giving them a safe environment to come and feel like they are accepted and loved. Schools need to know how to help kids like me. We cannot expect them to learn on their own, and YOU can help them.
— Tru Wilson, Delta Secondary Student

Educator

As a past teacher and former President of the BCTF, I have had the unprecedented advantage of witnessing the positive results of ARC Foundation’s work. The resources and support given to teachers through SOGI 1 2 3 enables them to feel confident in their role as educators when discussing SOGI topics, which in turn provides for positive impacts on the students they teach.
— Glen Hansman, Former President of the BC Teachers' Federation (BCTF)

Parent

Like the ARC Foundation, BCCPAC members believe that all students, in all schools across the province, should feel safe and included at school. The dialogue ARC initiated and the tools and resources they created with the help and support of the partners in education such as ourselves, have propelled the discussion to the forefront for the benefit of students and their families. We are proud to be a supporter and an ally of both SOGI 1 2 3 and ARC.
— Andrea Sinclair, President, BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC)

Society

I have been an advisor to ARC Foundation since 2015 and have watched the organization grow and develop innovative, essential programming. I believe that ARC Foundation is well-positioned to build on their impact and expand SOGI I 2 3 across the province. I am pleased to support SOGI I 2 3 Alberta.
— Scott Graham, The Stollery Charitable Foundation

SOGI 1 2 3 is our flagship program.

SOGI 1 2 3 helps educators make schools inclusive and safe for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI).

It accelerates systemic change and grassroots action by building province-wide networks of educators and then supporting them in three key aspects of SOGI-inclusive education:

  1. Creating SOGI-Inclusive School Policies

  2. Creating SOGI-Inclusive School Environments

  3. Using SOGI-Inclusive Teaching Resources

64% of LGBTQ students still feel unsafe at school.

This can change.
