YOUTH EDUCATION

The Royal Canadian Legion is committed to ensuring the tradition of Remembrance remains relevant to and supported by younger generations. We promote youth-specific education regarding Veterans and Remembrance through a range of local and national initiatives

The Barrie Legion encourages local schools to promote Remembrance Day Ceremonies, and our Branch is frequently involved in supporting those ceremonies. Remembrance is also promoted through the Legion’s school-aged poster and literary contests. These contests see more than 100,000 students each year honour Canada’s Veterans through creative art and writing. As well, the Barrie Legion distributes Poppies and educational materials and offers schools the opportunity to have a speaker share stories and experiences about Veterans and Remembrance with the children.

Other activities include:

  • Commemorative ceremonies for youth
  • Legion Youth Auxiliaries coordinated at the Branch level
  • Support for Cadets, Scouts and Guides to strengthen their leadership and growth
  • Partnership with Cadets to deliver Poppy campaign
  • Encourage youth participation in Remembrance ceremonies
  • Youth scholarship and bursary programs, coordinated at the Branch level
