Courses In The AWCCA Program

The pedagogy of AWCCA is rooted in a learner-centred approach that acknowledges that collaborative learning is crucial to success, and that acknowledges the needs learners have that may result from their experiences of violence. AWCCA curriculum is designed to ensure that learners will build skills required for success in the program; it will also take into account learners' lived experience and the skills they have developed as a result.

WHAT GRADUATES ARE SAYING NOW...

This is a time when it is becoming risky to live with open hearts or to even suggest a compassionate approach to politics, culture, and our communities. But this is a time when it is needed most. It feels rebellious to prevent violence from having one more human ignore one more heart. It is powerful, for ourselves and for others as we deposit tenderness into a society that feeds on oppression, but is starving for unabashed loveThis is a time when it is becoming risky to live with open hearts or to even suggest a compassionate approach to politics, culture, and our communities.
