YouthBeat is the latest program to develop out of The Royal Conservatory's "Learning Through the Arts" (LTTA) program.
A leader in the development of programs that meet the learning, wellness, and social development needs of youth, LTTA is focused on increasing student engagement through inclusive instructional models. With a professional development model based in building online communities of practice, we bring together teachers and students from across North America and the globe to address some of the most pressing issues faced in the classroom today.
LTTA created YouthBeat in 2017 in response to requests from educators for programming that would help build positive relationships between teachers and their students, and between culturally diverse students, while providing support for students' emotional well being. Through a partnership with Seven Oaks School Division in Winnipeg, the program has also grown to include support for cross-disciplinary learning projects.
