Canadian Association of Principals
The Canadian Association of Principals (CAP) represents and serves the Principals and Vice-Principals of schools across Canada. The Association is comprised of provincial associations from each province, each being an active partner in the educational decision-making process in each province or territory. CAP supports education, students and its members by organizing a variety of special projects, many of which are funded by federal government departments, companies and other organizations. The primary strength of CAP in such projects is its ability to communicate with school-based administrators, who often are the gatekeepers for educational innovations.
Canadian School Boards Association
The Canadian School Boards Association, the national voice of school boards, is composed of nine provincial school board associations representing over 400 school boards serving more than four million elementary and secondary school students. CSBA exercises leadership by advocating excellence in public education and promoting the value of locally elected school boards through collaborations, research and information sharing with other partners.
Airline Ambassadors International
Airline Ambassadors International (AAI) is a non-profit organization affiliated with the United Nations and recognized by the US Congress. It is a network of airline employees and others who volunteer as "Ambassadors of Goodwill" in their home communities and abroad. Members share their unique skills and talents to care for others and bring compassion into action.
AAI provides humanitarian aid to children and families in need as well as relief and development to under-privileged communities worldwide. We escort children in need, hand-deliver humanitarian aid to orphanages, clinics, and remote communities, assist at special events and involve youth in humanitarian efforts around the world.
IHTEC has been a member of AAI since the IIPT Third Global Conference, Sustainable Tourism, held in Glasgow in October 17 - 21. 1999. On March 24, 2000 Airline Ambassadors transported and donated exercise books, art materials and to the David Alfredo School, Puerto Morelos, Mexico. These were given to the teachers at a high level event with the Premier of Quintana Roo. At the same time Award Cups were given to six children, who won the ISPG International Music Award 2000, with their song “Los Desees de la Paz”.
Canadian Teachers' Federation
The Canadian Teachers' Federation was created in 1920 to ensure that, as teachers, our opinion was heard and taken into account whenever any authority outside the provincial jurisdiction was considering action which would affect us as teachers, or impinge on our work with students. That remains our primary goal today.

Future Aces - Herbert Carnegie Foundation
Herbert H. Carnegie, Founder of the Herbert H. Carnegie Future Aces Foundation, was honoured on March 30th, 2006, for the 50th Anniversary of the writing of the Future Aces Creed. The Creed contains twelve positive statements or, as Herb calls them, rules for life. He wrote them to help himself overcome the anger he felt when he did not get chosen for the National Hockey League because of his colour. Today the Creed is used in schools from Canada to China, Barbados, Africa; it affects over 60000 students annually. The inspiring anniversary gala was held at the Toronto Centre for the Arts, Ontario. To read more about Herb, the Creed and the gala, go to http://futureaces.org.
IHTEC has participated with Future Aces at two leadership conferences; in friendship, they are promoting each other's programs. Dianne Leggatt is an Education Facilitator, and a retired principal, who continues fostering the Creed with Future Aces Executive Director Bernice Carnegie, Education Director, Vivian Shapiro ... and, of course, Founder, Herbert H. Carnegie.
Green Teacher Magazine
Green Teacher Magazine was launched in late 1986 by Damian Randle, who at the time was the Education Officer of the Centre for Alternative Technology in the UK in mid-Wales. Focussing on environment and development education, the magazine aspired to present a compendium of articles and activities useful to K-12 educators across the English- speaking world. Regional addresses were established in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
In early 1991, two Toronto high school teachers, Tim Grant and Gail Littlejohn left their teaching positions to launch a Canadian edition of Green Teacher from their home office. They recruited regional editors from all Canadian provinces and territories. A growing US readership gradually led to the magazine's becoming more North American in scope. Green Teacher is currently establishing a network of US regional editors.
IJGD - Internationale Jugendgemeinschaftsdienstse
IJGD (International Youth Community Services) are a non-profit organization independent of any religious or political party. We organise volunteer service programmes in Germany and abroad which can last between 2 weeks and 18 months.

Our aims thus include the promotion of international understanding and the reduction of prejudice between people of different nations, social backgrounds, religions and political ideas.
