What we’ve accomplished so far
In the last year, One Silver Lining has gained prevalence within the GTA by hosting campaigns and events such as Bea(u)tiful Benefit Concert, which featured over 30 youth performers and raised money for the National Eating Disorder Information Centre. One Silver Lining also spearheaded the (Be)lieve in (You)rself campaign, a viral photo campaign that aimed to promote positive body image online. The campaign consisted of photos of youth holding up inspirational phrases and sharing those photos throughout several social media platforms. One Silver Lining has conducted workshops at conferences and in elementary schools and high schools across York Region. So far, we have worked with over 1,000 teens and preteens and have conducted workshops on a number of topics, such as self esteem building, body image and bullying. These OSL workshops have been incredibly well received among staff and students alike.
