Apathy is Boring is a non-partisan, charitable organization that supports and educates youth to be active and contributing citizens in Canada’s democracy. Our vision is a Canada where every young Canadian is an active citizen, and youth are meaningfully engaged in all aspects of the democratic process. The goal of the RISE program is to mobilize our less engaged peers in democracy by getting them involved in a community project around the theme of Social Inclusion. Last cohort, the ambassadors involved challenged stereotypes, created opportunities for dialogue between different youth groups, and used art as a means to talk about their peers' experience with Social Exclusion. We're looking forward to seeing what this cohort's group of ambassadors come up with.
RISE is currently offered Montreal, Edmonton, Ottawa and Toronto.
