More than ever, the urgency for ethical education among Ontario teenagers is growing. Research among high school students points to a significant gap between the need for ethics and its provision. The choices made by youth today have a far greater impact – partly due to our 'connected' culture – compared to those made by previous generations. An ethical grounding at a younger age sets the framework for a lifetime of good decision-making despite negative outside influences such as peer pressure.
The Helm Project is dedicated to promoting ethical conduct and leadership among youth in the County of Simcoe and beyond. For more information, please visit www.helmproject.ca.
