Background

"Conversations That Matter" Program Manager is an important leadership position in our organization. The Manager will oversee the entire operation of the program. This program is designed to engage Jr Secondary School students in conversations that matter to the students in the context of social-emotional growth and development, cross-cultural communication, diversity,… etc.

What we have

A well-structured organization, interesting and inspiring lesson plans, and a team of dedicated volunteers who will host 70 “Conversations That Matter” Zoom Classes in the academic year 2023/24.

Why this is important

The "Conversations That Matter" program is one of the 6 initiatives of Books & Beyond. The most challenging part of working with youth is getting a young person engaged in a conversation.Instead of a place of authority and responsibility, we take a genuine interest in them and the conversation that matters to them in the context of social-emotional learning.
