On August 3rd, Club President Richard and President-elect Paul were pleased to present our Club's cheque for $1,500 to Brian Breckles, President, Junior  Achievement, Waterloo Region. Junior Achievement requested our support to fund two students participation in The Junior Achievement Next Generation Leaders (NGL) Forum which takes place in London Ontario from August 19 to 24, 2018. This request was recently approved by our Foundation. 
This JA event is an international, multicultural exchange of knowledge and ideas where students continue to develop leadership skills as they work together with JA students from around the globe. Students will participate in a variety of hands-on workshops, hear from industry experts and collaborate with global peers while working on specific challenges. JA Waterloo Region will hand pick a select number of our top students to participate in this program for the week long adventure in London. 
Rotary and JA have similar goals in supporting local youth to expand their business knowledge and to develop skills needed to compete in the new global economy.
