Catholic Advocacy Interest Group

The Catholic Advocacy Interest Group Cabinet of OSTA is comprised of Student Trustees representing the Catholic school boards across Ontario. With our faith being the guiding light of our advocacy, this year’s work will be founded on three pillars; Faith in Equity, The Art of Giving Back, and Actions in Catholic Servitude. The first pillar, Faith in Equity addresses incorporation of aspects of our faith in reinforcing equity for students. Our goal with Faith in Equity is to advocate for equitable practices in school boards and continuing to create safer and more welcoming environments for racialized, Indigenous, and 2SLGBTQ+ students.  The Art of Giving Back pillar emphasizes the importance of charity, endowment, and recognition. We hope that our focus will be recognizing Catholic Student Trustee’s in Ontario and providing more supports for Catholic students in the province.  Finally, the Actions in Catholic Servitude pillar prioritizes the utilization of our Catholic morals and values to impose a positive impact on others through acts of charity, volunteer work, etc. Through these acts we will strive to follow in the footsteps of Christ to embody our Catholic spirit. These pillars will be united through a series of campaigns centered around active advocacy. The Cabinet strives to be faithful and proud leaders in our communities.
