Let’s Get Talking is an online interactive learning community in which families, youth and children are connected to our post-secondary Student Ambassadors.

Through this student-centred initiative, our diverse group of Student Ambassadors will provide motivation, encouragement and guidance to students and their families, while also providing insight into their own lived experiences as they navigated their educational journeys and what they learned from it. 

We can’t wait to meet all of you, let’s get talking!
