“When I started CEGEP, I was looking for an immersive experience to complement my studies. I found a program where I could spend my winter break renovating schools in impoverished communities and tutoring children. The other participants and I spent our evenings delving into Jewish texts and trying to develop an understanding of what it means to be universally human while particularly Jewish. I returned to Montreal with a deeper appreciation of community building and made it a priority to contribute to the development of such programs.
These opportunities have provided me with a wonderful platform to pursue my interests and I encourage others to do so as well.”
Last year close to 6,000 young people participated in leadership development programs, mentorships, and networking opportunities, which help to foster excellence in future leaders.
