YCI "Motivational Day" is a day that is intended to inspire students to implement projects of change within their schools and community. This day will not only inspire the attendees, it will connect them with other youth who endeavour to make a difference in their schools.
There will be a speaker talking about life growing up outside Canada, being exposed to the violence of war as a child and the challenges of settling in Canada. The second speaker will talk about the barriers and difficulties of growing up with a disability and show what can be accomplished against such odds.
The participants will also hear of youth driven projects that have been implemented successfully within schools. By providing the youth with the passion and framework to work from, miraculous things can occur.
