YCDSB congratulates Angela Dela Cruz, a student at St. Jean de Brebeuf CHS in Woodbridge who will be starting Grade 12 in September. Angela is one of 18 students from across Canada who were chosen to participate in the Canadian Youth Ambassador Program, which begins July 17, 2016. As part of the program, Angela will travel to Ottawa; Plattsburgh, New York; and Washington, D.C.
The Canadian Youth Ambassador Program is a three-week exchange designed for Canadians to visit the United States. The program brings together students, ages 15 to 18, and adult mentors from across Canada to promote mutual understanding, increase leadership skills, and position youth to make a difference in their communities. Program themes include civic education, community service, youth leadership, and social inclusion.
