OUR YOUTH ARE EMPOWERED
In 2010, ALPHA Education hosted an international education conference on WWII in Asia. More than 500 educators and students attended the conference where delegates from all over the world shed lights on an often-forgotten history. Saerom Youn and Helen Loo, two freshmen of the University of Toronto were shocked by the stories of survivors, activists, and scholars at the conference irrespective of their ethnic background.
After the conference, they expressed the interest of setting up an official student club at the university. After two years of deliberation, they received an official club status from the university in 2012. Their actions inspired other ALPHA youth and today, we have 5 ALPHA university chapters established across the province of Ontario.
ALPHA Chapters have organized many events in their own campuses; bake sales, photo exhibitions, film screenings, high school visits, case competitions, petitions, and a benefit concert.
McGill ALPHA will join the ALPHA Education University Chapters for the 2022-2023 school year! We aim to extend ALPHA Education’s mission to McGill students and host hybrid events allowing McGill students to learn about justice, peace, and reconciliation. Throughout the school year, we hope to find innovative ways to promote awareness within our communities.
We’re currently looking for an executive team to help lead our new chapter. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or look for us @mcgillalpha on Facebook or Instagram for more information.
McMaster ALPHA is run by passionate students dedicated to furthering the goals of education and reconciliation. Understanding the need to uphold the values of peace and justice as today’s youth become global citizens, McMaster ALPHA has organized events, including case competitions and photo exhibits to engage students. We focused on these themes through the lens of the atrocities faced by “comfort women”, the horrors of the Nanjing massacre, and other relevant historical events.
Queen’s ALPHA is the newest member of the ALPHA Education University Chapters family!
Founded in 2017, we are now proud to be entering our fifth year of operations as part of both the illustrious Queen’s clubs tradition and ALPHA Education mission.
We provide a wide variety of events throughout the school year that will entertain, inform, and centre historical discourse on the key values of justice, peace, and reconciliation. As a new chapter, we are always looking to grow our team with fresh faces!
