More than 30,000 youth have been welcomed to the Youth Symposium. As one speaker commented: ‘You will not find this calibre of program anywhere in Canada for this age group.’
Throughout the day, students and teachers hear inspiring, real-life messages and learn strategies and tools that will help them engage in the daily opportunities and challenges of high school including anti-bullying messaging, healthy dating tips and ideas to become better leaders both in their community and globally. Teachers appreciate and support the program because it reinforces many of their key messages through this very pivotal Grade 8 year. Ultimately this program provides information and build skills that can help empower these young people towards their strong futures!
