METRAC’s Respect in Action Program is proud to be launching “Journey to Healing”, a self-care zine made for youth, by youth.
This zine shares tools, practices, and resources captured from the experiences of diverse youth across Toronto aimed at exploring how youth experiencing violence can heal and thrive!
ReAct wants to thank the over 100 youth from across the city of Toronto who contributed their knowledge and experience to ensure that this zine is an empowering tool for diverse youth.
Thank you to the students from the following schools for their important contributions to this work:

“I would look forward to coming to school on Thursdays just so I could see the ReAct Youth Facilitators and my new friends – also to have very interesting conversations about things that are usually kept on the hush-hush.”
