Power To Be staff join provincial conversation about best practice in risk management

Power To Be program facilitators know that the difference between pushing comfort zones to promote skill and confidence levels and real risk lies in the planning.

Working with an organization that removes barriers for people to access nature, Jason Cole, Director of Programs and Clay Webb, Curriculum Coordinator, were honoured to join the conversation among educators in British Columbia on best practice at the International Schools Association of British Columbia Risk Management Conference 2016 in November. Co-hosted in Victoria by St. Michaels University School and Glenlyon Norfolk School, the two-day event brought together educators, administrators and risk managers from across the province to discuss best practice and gain insight from each other.

This unique opportunity for collaboration provided an amazing opportunity to learn together and grow risk management throughout B.C. Jason and Clay shared the story of Power To Be with the group, and highlighted some of the organization’s key learnings in regards to inclusion and risk management. For Power To Be, that is a multi-faceted exercise that is rooted in proactively empowering staff with the skills they need and recognizing that the participant is the expert in their abilities.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the conference this year and shared insight into how we can support more people to have memorable experiences in nature and through their education!
