JULY 19: DAY 18 AT SHAD LAKEHEAD - Thursday July 20, 2017
by SHAD Blogger
We had an incredible opportunity last night here at SHAD Lakehead to tackle a real world problem and have our voices heard. We were given an issue that the government is grappling with - how to get youth more involved in meaningful volunteer work - and had the opportunity to provide insight based on our experience.
Grades 10, 11 & 12 students (or equivalent) can apply for the SHAD 2017 program based on academics & interests. Are you a future SHAD?
