The T.I.C.K. Student Leadership Program initiative is a bi-annual granting program open to student groups in all secondary schools in the City of Brantford.
We believe that secondary students have the ability to identify the critical challenges that they and their peers are facing as well as strategies and supports to create solutions. The program is designed to foster leadership skills and encourage secondary school students to become involved in projects that they believe will promote positive choices consistent with the areas of focus and messaging in the elementary K.I.D.S. program.
The T.I.C.K. Board of Directors is proud to fund up to two (2) student led projects per semester for an amount up to $500.00. Applications are accepted from interested student groups in mid-November for the first semester and mid-February for the second semester. Applications are available on the website.
Successful applications will provide education or experiences that promote
- Mental Health
- Healthy Relationships
- Online and Social Media Responsibility
- Substance Awareness
- Social Responsibility and Citizenship
