Since 2007, Jer’s Vision has been proud to partner with the Inside Out Film Festival. The festival works hard to celebrate the creative talents and share the divers stories of our community.
This year, Jer’s Vision sent posters to high schools across the region, highlighting the festival amazing series of youth short films. This was especially exciting because this particular series was free for any student.
We also promoted the festival on our website, newsletters, and at every regional workshop (speaking to over 3000 people).
Inside Out graciously recognizes Jer’s Vision as an in-kind sponsor, and as such invited our new Hep C Manager, Kai, to speak at the screening of Lilting. Inside Out will also be donating a filme to the National GSA Forum in May 2015.

Kai said the following:
Apart from these programs, I am proud to be a part of our national program that engages youth to start complex conversations on different aspects of health, specifically mental health as well as sexually transmitted and blood born infections. As part of this project, we are actually bringing 85 student from across Canada to come to Ottawa during the first week of December to train them to become Health Ambassadors who will not only return to their schools and run fun community projects to educate their peers on STBBIs but to also to demand for a more comprehensive and inclusive Sex-Ed Programs in their schools.
