WHAT IS THE HYLS?
The Halton Youth Leadership Symposium is an entirely student-run conference held on May 19th, 2017 at Sheridan College in Oakville. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn skills from successful leaders and engage in meaningful conversations with like-minded youth. The day is packed with workshops, panels, keynote speakers, and networking breaks.
What's on the agenda?
The agenda has 3 major components: workshops (run by Student Senate leaders), keynotes, and a student voice section. The purpose of the final session is to serve as a feedback and consultation mechanism for the Student Trustees and Senate: we want to hear the voices of elementary students across the board!
