What do past participants have to say…
“The Redfish School of Change was the most intellectually stimulating
and meaningful experience of my post-secondary career.”

“Amazing” is an understatement when it comes to describing my
experience in the Redfish School of Change and “beautiful” does not do
justice to the places that we have seen and visited. I feel like my
experience goes beyond what words can explain.”

to make change. This has been the most inspiring and rewarding
