V.O.I.C.E.S. Program

The V.O.I.C.E.S. (Visual Outreach Initiative Creating Empowered Students) program was developed in 2007 in collaboration with York Region District School Board to empower Grade 5 students socially and academically through art-based activities.

Although the last couple of years have been filled with significant challenges, the V.O.I.C.E.S. program proved to be resilient and continued as scheduled despite the multiple provincial lockdown orders. The McMichael’s firm commitment to the belief that art plays a pivotal role in children’s wellbeing and feeling of interconnectedness allowed us to persevere and provide an outlet of relief and creativity during turbulent times.
