CJPAC’s Generation Student Leaders Program is designed specifically for high school students from across Canada who are politically interested and engaged. Students gather throughout the school year to meet with a variety of experienced and insightful speakers. They engage in thoughtful discussions with other young adults that are designed to open the doors to engagement in the democratic process. During these sessions, students enhance their political knowledge, strengthen their voices and hone their skills. As part of the program, students make valuable connections and expand their peer and professional networks – in turn, bolstering the voice of the Jewish community in Canada now and for the future. The program culminates with a trip to Ottawa where the students have the opportunity to meet with elected officials and political staff and continue to engage in the political process.
