PANEL: Future Ready: Young Leaders on Keeping the Next Generation in School

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

K-12 systems across Canada are not meeting the needs of all young people. Many of these underserved youth are missing education milestones and are not staying in school. Successfully engaging these youth can be a challenge, but several innovative programs have emerged to work with these young people. This panel will showcase bold young leaders whose programs move beyond the classroom to keep the next generation in school and open up future career pathways. Their fresh perspectives will be explored and panellists will offer their recommendations to address systemic challenges.
