On May 27, 2014, Valour Canada launched its inaugural Junior High School program on the role and experiences of women in war. Involving over one hundred participants (and over 400 for the semester overall), students were exposed to female perspectives from all sides of war, including soldiers' and civilians'. Speakers included a female soldier from the Canadian Army who served in Afghanistan, as well as the curator of the Founders' Gallery at The Military Museums, who spoke on female non-combatants in war zones. Students were also given the opportunity to explore the various galleries at the museum.
