We are also excited to announce that we are expanding the Youth Symposium for Waterloo Region students, held in Kitchener and offering this valuable program over two days for the first time.
The dates are:

- This year for the FIRST time ever we are adding a third day! Wednesday April 17, 2019 and Thursday April 18, 2019 and this year we will be able to accommodate at least 3,000 Grade 8 students and their teachers in Waterloo Region.
The registration fee is $10 per student. Schools are responsible for arranging and paying for their own bus transportation.
It promises to be an inspirational day for all! More information on the registration process and program information to follow on January 30th.
We hope to see you at the 2019 Youth Symposium!
About the Youth Symposium
The Youth Symposium program brings together 14 powerful presentations from some of the best speakers in the country, covering a wide range of topics that have a long-lasting, positive impact on the students. We have welcomed more than 33,000 youth to the unique Youth Symposium program.
As Stu Saunders, one of our guest speakers, said: “You will not find this calibre of program anywhere in Canada for this age group.”
Students and teachers had the opportunity to listen and engage in three presentations throughout the day. Click here to see the 2018 Program Brochure.
