Student Leadership

T.I.C.K. Inc. has two Student Leadership Programs; Student Leadership Grant and Poster Contest.

 

Student Leadership Grants

Grants offered through this program, to a maximum of $500, are intended to encourage students to become more involved in the educational process and to promote teaching youth how to make positive choices when they are faced with contemporary issues in their peer group, family and community.

Students from grades 9 to 12 in the City of Brantford are eligible to apply to T.I.C.K. Inc. for one-time funding of a school-based project reflective of one of the topics covered in the KIDS Program. Students are encouraged to be original and professional in their interpretation and presentation.

On June 7, 2017, Carol Ann Sloat and Laura Fretz, representing the Board of T.I.C.K. Inc. (Teaching Intelligent Choices to Kids), which delivers the K.I.D.S. (Knowledge Issues Decisions Supports) Program to grade-6 students in Brantford, presented North Park students and staff with a $500 Student Leadership Grant for their KICK Project. The KICK Project will enhance knowledge of marihuana facts, risk factors and alternatives to substance abuse.

Poster Contest

Like Student Leadership Grants, students from grades 9 to 12, in the City of Brantford, are eligible to enter our annual poster contest. Each secondary school is asked to submit two student-created posters, of which one will be chosen. Students are challenged to create posters which will assist elementary school students with their transition from elementary to secondary school, using one of the following topics:

  • the law and the consequences of breaking the law;
  • building positive peer relationships, based on respect, and free from harassment and bullying;
  • developing awareness of safe and appropriate use of the internet and online social media;
  • the effects of drug use and the consequences of abuse; and
  • relevant mental health issues and where to get support.

Creating posters also provides an opportunity for students to recall the lessons they learned in grade-six, and assume a leadership role by sharing their knowledge and reminding others that those important messages continue to be effective tools in their own high school careers and beyond.
