Leadership Club Inspires with Water First Initiative
This year, the Junior Leadership Club partnered with Water First, a nonprofit organization that focusses on bringing clean water to communities within Ontario. Approximately two out of every five First Nations communities within the province have contaminated water. The students spent the spring learning about the importance of clean drinking water and lack of understanding around this issue. In an effort to raise more awareness, club members created and sold water droplet pendants for two dollars. Word spread quickly there was something special happening in the cafeteria! Enthusiastic students gathered to pick their favourite craft while student leaders spoke about the importance of clean drinking water for all.
