Vital People: Young philanthropists in training include 12-year-old Myla Bui, who folded 1,001 cranes to raise funds https://twnonline.org/vital-people-young-philanthropists-in-training-include-12-year-old-myla-bui-who-folded-1001-cranes-to-raise-funds/ Sun, 28 Nov 2021 15:04:52 +0000 https://twnonline.org/vital-people-young-philanthropists-in-training-include-12-year-old-myla-bui-who-folded-1001-cranes-to-raise-funds/ If you were offered $ 50 to donate, which charity would you give it to?

If you were offered $ 50 to donate, which charity would you give it to?

More than 300 people under 25 took up the challenge at the end of the Coast Capital Power of Youth: Giving Hearts 2021 workshop this month, marking National Philanthropy Day.

This was the fifth year of the annual event, which was envisioned as an opportunity for young people from across Vancouver Island to participate in a do-it-yourself philanthropy workshop, individually or in groups.

“The workshop is an opportunity to encourage and inspire young people,” said Charlene Smith, National Philanthropy Day chair for the Vancouver Island chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. “It’s about providing them with a new base of skills, a better understanding of philanthropy that they can integrate into their daily lives. “

Applicants were expected to complete five chapters at their own pace starting October 1, with a final submission on October 31. Participants learned about topics such as fundraising, advocacy and volunteering. The youth participated in readings, videos and activities and were able to choose to meet virtually or in person.

Upon receipt of their final submission, each youth received a $ 50 CanadaHelps gift card to donate to the charity of their choice.

This year, the $ 15,000 and more made available to the program was provided by the Andrew D. Beckerman Fund and the Victoria Foundation’s Viveka Foundation.

“Seeing the diversity of charities that attendees choose gives us insight into the social issues that concern them – and how they want to use philanthropy as a way to change lives for the better,” Smith said. “We are inspired by the young people of today and hope that they will keep this fire going as they become the agents of change of tomorrow. “

One of the participants was 12-year-old Myla Bui, no stranger to philanthropy, having raised over $ 30,000 in three months for the Help Fill a Dream foundation in January.

She was inspired by fundraising for the foundation as a thank you for the support her family received after her sister Leila was hit by a car in 2017 at the age of 11 and suffered serious injuries cerebral.

His 1001 Cranes, 1 Wish campaign was based on an ancient Japanese legend that the gods will grant a wish to anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes. Myla asked her supporters to donate a dollar for every crane she or her family creates.

Even after the campaign ended, donations continued to flow in and Myla says she will continue to make cranes until they stop.

“Myla started making cranes when she was only 11 and is still attached to them,” said her mother, Kairry Nguyen. “She is a very generous girl. I am very proud of her and also overwhelmed by the support she received.

She said her daughter liked the workshop because she could complete the course materials at her own pace throughout the month.

When they first heard about the workshop, their first response was that there wasn’t much more to learn, given Myla’s success in fundraising.

“But Myla loves to learn, so she said ‘Why not?’ ”Said Nguyen.

They are happy to have signed. Myla said the part she loved the most about the workshop was meeting other people.

Unsurprisingly, she donated the $ 50 she received at the end of the workshop to the Help Fill a Dream Foundation.

CFBC Partners to Engage Indigenous Youth in Vocational Training https://twnonline.org/cfbc-partners-to-engage-indigenous-youth-in-vocational-training/ Fri, 26 Nov 2021 12:09:16 +0000 https://twnonline.org/cfbc-partners-to-engage-indigenous-youth-in-vocational-training/ A new partnership led by the Construction Foundation of BC (CFBC) was recently formed to help Indigenous youth gain the skills they need to be successful in the workforce.

A new partnership led by the Construction Foundation of BC (CFBC) was recently formed to help Indigenous youth gain the skills they need to be successful in the workforce.

The partnership in question, the Two Eyed Seeing Network, organized focus groups of First Nations communities and youth in British Columbia to hear their thoughts on how to design the system.

CFBC Executive Director Abigail Fulton says the full participation of Indigenous youth is critical to the future strength of the province’s workforce.

Over the next two years, the network will host a series of roundtables across the province on workforce development.

A unique feature of the consultations is the use of a “two-eyed” approach that integrates Western and Indigenous ways of looking at the world.

Fulton says the network is an example of how CFBC, a registered charity founded in 2013, acts as a bridge between industry and the public.

“Our passion is applied learning and our vocation is to provide young people with pathways to the trades,” she said. “The foundation is unique in that it focuses on the needs of young aspiring tradespeople – labor supply – and industry – labor demand. “

Fulton says CFBC’s line of work could be called “Applied ESG [Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance]. “

Funding to support the CFBC’s mission comes from three sources: industry sponsorships, private donations and government funded programs.

Since the foundation’s inception, its fundraising has benefited many individuals and organizations in British Columbia.

For example, he raised millions of dollars to equip workshop courses with new equipment; offered driver training to youth in and out of care; connected educators with professional development opportunities; and awarded scholarships to young people to continue their vocational studies.

One of CFBC’s oldest programs is Skills Ready, which launched in 2016.

Skills Ready helps prepare young people for careers in construction by identifying and promoting the soft skills they need to be successful in the skilled construction trades.

Skills Ready also enables the industry to help young people enroll in apprenticeship programs and move on to long-term careers.

Since its inception, the program has grown to support young people interested in careers in sectors of the economy other than construction.

A more recent CFBC program is the Trades Exploration Camp, on which the foundation partnered with Burnaby Ironworkers Local 97 in the summer of 2021, to spark young people’s interest in the trades.

The five-day workshop focused on metalworking and woodworking.

Workstations, where young participants learned the basics of tools and associated safety protocols, were set up for welding, flame cutting, wood cutting, finishing and painting.

On the fifth day, each member of the group put the finishing touches to their own table and benches.

“It was an exciting week and the kids were awesome – they jumped in to try out all the tools,” said René Ragetli, CFBC project operations manager, who led the workshop.

Later in the summer of 2021, CFBC established a training fund with the Masonry Institute of BC (MIBC) to provide tuition and training support for people entering or continuing training in the professions of the masonry.

Eligible applicants will receive up to $ 1,000 to be applied towards training costs incurred at the Trowel Trades Training Association.

MIBC’s mandate is to promote the development of masonry in British Columbia through technical support to designers, educators and building officials.

One of the foundation’s biggest fans is Phil Long, director of Phil Long Construction Services Ltd in West Kelowna, BC and past president of CFBC.

“The foundation is the best ambassador in the industry,” said Long. “It does a great job promoting trades as a good career in public schools. “

Katy Fairley, director of Fairley Strategies in Vancouver and director of CFBC, says the foundation “bridges a gap where individuals and businesses can directly contribute to the betterment of the industry.

“The foundation helps promote the industry as a viable career option to otherwise under-represented groups, particularly Indigenous peoples and communities,” said Fairley. “Equally important is her helping to navigate the learning system and improve skills. “

It’s never too early to start encouraging young people to consider careers in the trades, says Fulton.

“Start talking to them in kindergarten,” she said. “Make sure their teachers out there and in public schools understand what trades and applied learning are. Bring industry into schools and make applied learning part of the curriculum. Support students and teachers and help them throughout and over time our efforts will pay off. “

Golf star Tiger Woods took his first steps on the greens this weekend. A video of the American champion showing him for the first time in training with a golf club in hand since his car crash in California has been posted from his Twitter account,

This video lasts only a few seconds, with Tiger seen from behind quietly hitting an iron, in front of a bucket of balls, on a golf driving range whose location is not specified. This image immediately sparked several thousand fan reactions, as Tiger has 6.5 million Twitter followers. Some observers had announced after his accident that it would be difficult to replay golf at the highest level.

Justin Thomas, professional player and friend of the tiger, immediately welcomed the return to practice of one who is considered one of the best golfers of all time. Just after reassuring on Twitter how much he appreciated Rory McIlroy’s passion for the European Tour on Sunday, Thomas added, sharing Woods’ video: “But I think I love him even more.” Justin Thomas had recently judged probable in a podcast the return on the greens of Tiger Woods. “I know he will try,” he said. “But I don’t see him playing again if he can’t play well. “.

The timing is not negligible

The timing of this video is not surprising, however: the Tiger Woods Foundation just celebrated its 25th anniversary on November 18, and a charity tournament it is organizing in the Bahamas, the Hero World Challenge, is scheduled for early December with 20 guests among the best players in the world, including his compatriots Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas and Bryson deChambeau.

Involve UK said it aims to “be a real game-changer when it comes to building an inclusive and diverse business”. One of its main features is a list of “LGBT + role models” that employers can draw inspiration from, which celebrates Stonewall 25 times in a brilliant light.

Mr Davie told staff that “the BBC cannot be impartial in reporting on public policy debates where Stonewall plays an active campaign role”, which led to an angry Zoom appeal where the chief of BBC news told staff to “get used to” hearing different points of view.

However, activists accused the broadcaster of “Stonewall in everything but name”, while a senior Conservative MP told the BBC he “should know” that “far left organizations are covering up intentions”.

Advice on the use of honorary titles

Involve UK’s policy papers make many contributions to trans debates. This includes examining honors – of which common examples are Mr. and Mrs. – and advocating for self-identified gender, a position shared by Stonewall which feminists say relegates biological sex to uselessness and distorts human rights. statistics.

The One Involve UK guide, titled Championing a Trans-inclusive Workplace, said: “Review your application and recruitment processes; what honorary titles are available on the nominations? How are job descriptions written? In your employee surveys, is there a free text option for people to identify with? “

The guide added, “Another important question to ask is how do you engage with clients and customers? Can they identify themselves? What honorary titles are in place when they sign up for services or use your products? “

Meanwhile, Involve UK’s role model list celebrates executives for working with Stonewall, celebrates high positions in the controversial Stonewall Workplace Equality Index ranking that the BBC left, and praises people for being Stonewall ambassadors.

Involve UK also provides advice to workplaces on ‘active alliance’, ‘active cultural advocacy’ including micro-aggression, systemic racism and white privilege, and urges employees to ‘call out’ language which is not considered sufficiently “inclusive”.

From the pan to the fire?

Maya Forstater, co-founder of the campaign group Sex Matters, stressed that such training must reflect the Equality Act of 2010, which protects biological sex by law but not gender identity.

She said: “The BBC should beware of signing up for another irresponsible program, which could turn out to be Stonewall other than his name.”

Kate Harris, co-founder of the Stonewall LGB Alliance separatist group, said: “Our concern is that the BBC does not jump out of the frying pan into the fire. Involve UK takes an equally controversial approach to LGBT issues as Stonewall. “

She added: “Will Involve UK defend the right of lesbians to define themselves as adult women attracted to the same sex or not?”

“For the sake of the BBC, its reputation and its audience, it needs to be open about the exact nature of the relationship and how it will maintain its editorial independence.”

The federal government, charged with openly discriminating against unvaccinated air travelers, is seeking to address their less direct forms of discrimination.

According to MERX website, where local and federal government agencies post requests for offers and information, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority requires anti-bias and unconscious bias training.

On October 30, 2021, the last restrictions on Canadian travelers came into effect. The new rules require that any traveler aged 12 years plus 4 months, or more, have two doses of COVID-19 vaccine to board:

  • domestic or international flights from most airports in Canada, including charter and foreign airlines carrying commercial passengers
  • VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains

However, until November 29, 2021, the federal government allows a small grace period, during which a valid COVID-19 molecular test can be performed within 72 hours of travel for people considered unvaccinated or under-vaccinated. .

Perhaps the new bias training is warranted.

According to a recent Angus Reid poll, given the demographics of those reluctant to get vaccinated, minorities are disproportionately affected by the travel ban for the unvaccinated:

Indigenous Canadians are twice as likely as those who do not identify as visible minorities to have refused to be vaccinated, and the government still has a lot of work to do to overcome mistrust caused by generations of abuse inflicted on Aboriginal people by the medical system.

Fight Vaccine Passports is a project, in partnership with registered Canadian charity The Democracy Fund, that is waging 20 strategic legal battles across the country to reverse the medical coercion of workplace vaccination mandates and proof of vaccination for participate in daily life.

The Shannon-class lifeboat arrived in Dunmore East Harbor on Sunday September 26th.and since then the volunteer lifeboat crew have trained tirelessly, familiarizing themselves with new electronic technology and the ship’s jet propulsion system. The € 2.4 million all-weather vessel is the first state-of-the-art Shannon-class lifeboat to be based in the southeast.

The Irish coast has been informed by the RNLI that the “William and Agnès Wray” is officially in service from 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 6, replacing the station’s Trent-class lifeboat.

I am extremely proud of our team of volunteers who have made a tremendous effort in volunteering their time and moving away from their families to complete the training to allow the “William and Agnes Wray” to go on duty. ‘

The name of the Shannon lifeboat class follows a tradition of naming lifeboats after rivers, but this is the first time that an Irish river has been chosen and this to reflect commitment and dedication. of Irish lifeboat crew for generations.

Coxswain Abrahamsson continued: “Elizabeth and Ronald have served us well here in Dunmore East and will be sadly missed, she is a great lifeboat, and I am happy that she continues to save lives and serve the people. Irish in the rescue fleet “
