More than 100 students attended the event to be trained in anti-bullying and health youth relationship programs offered by the Red Cross.
The students are then certified in the programs and able to train other students at their schools.
“We want kids to have the resources and the tools, we want them to be able to go to schools with these initiatives. And when they leave here they’re so powerful and empowered, they understand that they have a voice and they know how to use it,” said Price.
Pink Shirt Day started in 2007 when Price and a friend wore pink shirts to support a friend who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school.
The initiative is now held in cities across Canada.
