Diversity workshops can be tailored for youth and adults. Past participants have included high school and elementary school students, youth groups and after-school youth programs, youth workers, teachers, SWIS workers, volunteers, school administrative staff and municipal staff.

Neonology and Neonology 2.0 are workshops designed for high school and elementary school students. The workshop uses activities and games to unpack and discuss topics such as bullying, diversity and how to create a more welcoming classroom and community.

Neonology Legacy is a diversity workshop designed for teachers, youth workers, SWIS workers, school administration staff and anyone who may work with newcomer youth. Through interactive games and discussion pieces, the workshop creates dialogue around issues that newcomer youth may face and encourages professionals to share and discuss how they support the youth they encounter.
