“This training has given me the opportunity to meet like-minded people to network and put my plans into action.  Expect some change Toronto.” Eric Rogers


“This training helps one to focus on what’s really important and how to effectively apply what has been presented.” Gord Jackson


“This program has taught me many useful skills I would not have learn in my courses at Ryerson.  I now have some knowledge I can apply to not only organizing projects, but in interpersonal communication, presentation delivery and relationship building.  I am also very inspired to be more actively involved in volunteering for projects I am passionate about in my community.  It was an honour to have been given the change to attend the program.” Sindy Ng


“The program doesn’t just teach you about leadership. It lets you learn how to act, take action and make a difference in the world.” Nikolas Koschany


“I came without a specific campaign in mind, but now I can’t wait to lay out a plan and get started with a full (overflowing) toolkit!” Marce Bylinska


“This weekend provided me with much insight on the experiences of the largely diverse group of people I got to learn with. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this fantastic program” Maria Gaziano


“I would recommend taking this program to anyone with a passion and a reason to make change. You will be deeply affected positively by the learnings provided” Brittahy M. Stevens
