Rainbow Board Student Senate hosts Learn to Lead Conference on May 5th

The Rainbow District School Board Student Senate will host the Learn to Lead Conference on Thursday, May 5, 2022. Students from all Rainbow secondary schools will gather for the full-day event at the Cambrian College Amphitheatre.

“Through this conference, we hope to showcase the many leadership opportunities available to students,” says Student Trustee Michael Yao. “We want students, the future leaders of our generation, to leave feeling empowered and inspired to lead and make change.”

Students will enjoy a keynote address from Hall of Fame speaker Sunjay Nath at 10 am.

Sunjay Nath has shared his insights on leadership with more than one million people since 1995. Most recently, he is the founder and Vice-President of an e-learning company based in Toronto.

Sunjay Nath will share a framework that helps individuals and teams improve performance. His methodology combines best practices with small wins to help people empower themselves.

Following the keynote address, participants will engage in breakout sessions led by members of the Student Senate. Activities are designed to support and nurture enthusiastic student leaders in a fun and creative way.

Rainbow District School Board thanks the Ministry of Education for supporting this student conference through a SpeakUp Grant.
