Your Power To Choose

A curriculum-based election education program, Your Power to Choose was developed by Elections Manitoba in partnership with educators. The goal of the program is to create life-long learning skills and to instill the habit of civic participation among Manitoba youth. As part of the program, we offer free facilitated in-class workshops to Manitoba educators from early to senior years.

ABOUT YOUR POWER TO CHOOSE WORKSHOPS

Our trained facilitators will come to your classroom to deliver a fun, interactive workshop to your students through hands-on games, activities, and a mock election. Content links to the grades 6, 9, and 11 social studies curriculum outcomes, but workshops are available to any interested classes, grade 4 and up, including adult learners. The workshops are typically 1 ½ hours long and can accommodate 25-30 students, but can be adapted to fit the needs of any classroom.

The workshop’s mock election helps students experience the power of their own voice and the impact they can have on the community/world around them.

No preparation is required.

Workshops are available in both English and French.
