Rising Above is currently on tour across Canada! We will be making stops in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, PEI, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland before the end of May.

Sharing the stories of ten Canadians who were or currently are victims of bullying in their own lives, Rising Above focuses on the positive ways in which these individuals were able to rise above their circumstances and the adversity they faced. The film provides a source of hope for those currently being bullied, and empowers students to be empathetic, accepting, and to reach out to those around us who are struggling with challenges of their own.

We are grateful to have amazing partners and supporters who make this whole endeavour possible! Thank you to the Canadian Red Cross (our production partner), TELUS (national advertising sponsor) and the Ontario Provincial Police (provincial advertising sponsor in Ontario).

The event dates for January to June 2017 are currently posted on our registration page, and will be updated with more dates on a rolling basis as they are confirmed. Should you have any questions or wish to arrange a screening in your town or city, please contact our Program Director at kelsi@ylcc.com.
