“You just had to be there ... “

“I take it as a challenge to demonstrate how the design of the Young Canadian Leadership Challenge defies all odds to instil self-respect, promote values woven into the English and French Canadian fabric over a formative 400 years, and send youth of all backgrounds on their way deeply appreciating the vibrant diversity they have newly come to appreciate in others?

It’s asking a lot! You won’t be the first person who was skeptical. The man in the video on the left above was somewhat typical. He came, dabbled at the edges,  and then suddenly he saw that he was in the midst of a joyous youth learning experience, which fully involved him too.

Won’t you follow our video tour in your choice of official languages and see for yourself?
