OSAID began in 1987.
By 1995 OSAID had grown to 500 secondary schools across Ontario.
Almost 3 decades later, OSAID has seen ten's of thousands of students and teachers volunteer their time to make their schools and communities safer.
OSAID applauds all those volunteers!
" As I reflect on my experiences in OSAID, I can say that these experiences were definitely instrumental in developing the following for me:
presentation skills/confidence in public speaking
These are skills that I feel I would not have developed without having been involved in OSAID. OSAID allowed me to be a leader in an organization that didn’t require that I was an athlete or a musician or to have any special talents. OSAID required that I had an interest in raising awareness towards a very important cause and provided me with self-awareness and valuable real life skills in return. "
