L’Arche and Education

L’Arche Canada’s Education page

L’Arche offers high quality supplementary course materials designed to inspire young people with a vision of a world where everyone belongs and can make a contribution. This is the vision of Jean Vanier–a vision of which L’Arche is one manifestation. “You can choose…You can do something beautiful with your lives” Vanier tell today’s youth. L’Arche materials are written by professional educators and have received excellent evaluations from public, private and Catholic school teachers and principals and from ministry officials. — website
