University of Waterloo – Youth Social Action Retreat

The Youth Social Action Retreat is an overnight learning experience for carefully selected Grade 11 students. Teachers in social science disciplines are asked to nominate students to participate in the Youth Social Action Retreat. This event will bring 50 students to Renison University College at the University of Waterloo, where students will be surrounded by peers who share similar interests and leadership traits.

There is no cost for the event, but students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from Rension. Participants are scheduled to arrive at 10:00 am on Saturday May 10 and leave noon on Sunday, May 11, 2019.
