Youth Engagement

The Youth Engagement team's focus is to educate and raise awareness among students on the issues of poverty that EWB is trying to solve. We do this by holding informational booths in the Waterloo campus on programs such as Fair Trade and Global Engineering and presenting school outreach workshops in the Kitchener Waterloo region as well as at conferences. The demand for our school presentations from teachers are rising term by term. As well, we partake in the outreach events for elementary and high school students. In the future, we plan to start a Youth Mailing List to highlight how different schools are making a difference in their world. A good YE team member is passionate, enthusiastic, outgoing and patient when talking to younger and fellow students.

The current B-stream Youth Engagement team leads is Laura Luna. The current A-stream lead is Celeste Alcena.
