BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!

Due to recent CBEEN program funding changes, we will now offer price options for Wild Voices for Kids programs.

Please select the price option that suits your needs, knowing that some schools don’t have access to the financial resources that others do.

We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking.  It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.

We continue to have a COVID-19 policy in place and teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs.

Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at wildvoices@cbeen.org

"Amy is fantastic and we're so fortunate to have her visit JVH again. What I most appreciate is the passion Amy brings to the classroom. It is clear to all that Metis education is something that is tremendously important to her. This is reflected in the attention students pay to her when they are with her." - Alastair McKay
