Change It Up!
Change it Up! is a unique program designed for Aboriginal youth (15-30) that have not been successful in traditional education. As a result, these youth face multiple barriers on their path to employment and active citizenship. In many cases, a lack of success in school has built negative associations with education—and that may stop them from attending typical school-based training programs that are offered.

Educating to Thrive in the 21st Century
The Change Learning Project is an innovative, multi-stage initiative to transform the way we understand and structure education in Canada. The purpose of the project is to create and implement a redesigned educational model—one that is rooted in what we know about how children learn and develop, and one that involves parents and community, addresses the whole child and meets the needs of our 21st century realities.
John Abbott speaks about the role of the community in supporting and improving schools. In particular, he discusses a project in Princeton, New Jersey, in which an entire community (90 000 people strong) was challenged to find a mission statement for their system of education.
John Abbott discusses a program in Sweden in which students spend a number of school days per year shadowing adults at their jobs. The program begins at the age of seven and continues until high school graduation.
