“The Niagara Student Summit is truly BY YOUTH FOR YOUTH and it gets better every year thanks to input from students and contributions from a wide variety of supportive professionals. A huge thank you to Enbridge Gas Inc. for continually believing in youth and supporting our events.” – Shreeya Patel co-chair of the organizing team.
“I believe that outside of the classroom learning experiences are extremely important! The Niagara Student Summit allows students to spend a day on a post-secondary campus and to be exposed to a wide variety of topics that were selected by their peers. Everyone can benefit from taking the time to explore new things and learn new skills. With the sponsorship from Enbridge we are able to continue to host this amazing initiative.” – Vanessa George, co-chair of the organizing team.
