On October 24th to 26th The Resolve Conference will be taking place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Downtown Vancouver. Created by four Grade 12 Meadowridge students, this conference aims to provide an opportunity for local youth to discuss and formulate initiatives to problems close at home and relevant to high schoolers. From bullying to teen poverty, each participant will select a topic/committee in which they will focus on for the duration of the three days.
With Craig Kielburger, the co-founder, of Free The Children, an international charity, Me to We, an innovative social enterprise, and We Day, a signature youth empowerment event, being the keynote speaker, followed by specific speakers for each committee, the grade 8 to 12 participants will learn from the personal experiences of these experts in the hopes of making a difference with their own initiatives.
