Making a difference together: The YMAD Waterloo story, as told by student tweets

YMAD Waterloo was hosted on March 25, 2015 at Wilfred Laurier University. High school students from across the region attended workshops with a real world experts on specific social issues.

Within topic groups, students worked with their peers and facilitators to discuss the issues, develop ideas and imagine possible solutions. Students developed creative concepts for awareness campaigns, fundraisers and volunteer initiatives that could take place within their own schools and Waterloo community. Students collaborated and determined ways to make a difference.

The conference was documented through social media, as we’ve compiled some of the best comments and images posted by participants throughout the day.
