The Concerned Kids educates children through the uniquely engaging art of puppetry, empowering young people to make smarter and kinder choices, and further enabling schools and communities to become safer places to live, learn and play.
Our Bullying Prevention Program helps students identify bullying situations and offers strategies to help them stand up for themselves and others. We explore the importance of expressing our feelings, talking about our problems and working together to resolve disagreements in a constructive and considerate way. We strive to educate children about the issue of bullying, to promote sensitivity toward peers, and to provide strategies to help children cope with and avoid bullying situations.
The Voices Youth Leadership Camp is a Brampton-Caledon Foundation and the Ontario Trillium Foundation SEED grant-funded program in partnership with ResQ Youth International. This pilot iteration of the program, called the Arts & Script Writing Intensive, will be taking place during March Break of 2020. In this program, 15 youth will participate in a five-day intensive where they will explore the art of puppetry through daily script writing sessions and multiple workshops in theatre, puppetry, visual arts, videography, creative writing and music. The program will culminate in May, when we will host a performance screening of the youth’s work. Learn More >>

Puppetry In Education
The Concerned Kids’ education curriculum uses a non-threatening medium of interactive puppetry to introduce a number of sensitive topics to elementary school aged children and community organizations all over the city of Toronto and the surrounding GTA. We empower young people through the creative medium of puppetry. In order to stay relevant with what students face on a daily basis, The Concerned Kids has adjusted its programming to better align to the realities of School Curriculums.
