Students and staff of Waterford Valley High say that standing in a room with 10,000 Atlantic Canadian Change Makers, all sharing the same passion to change our world, was simply amazing. The organization ME to WE, which hosts WE Day, is an organization working to empower Generation WE to move from an egoistic lifestyle to living more altruistically. Waterford Valley High’s Social Justice Committee is a registered WE School and have commitment to support at least one local and one global cause throughout our school year. Through the school’s work with ME to WE, West Jet provided the students the opportunity to travel to WE Day Atlantic in Halifax at the end of November. A total of 14 youth and 3 teachers were inspired, empowered and prepared to help create change and fight for a just society. WE Day is different from other conferences; you can’t buy a ticket. You must earn it. Listening to WE Day speakers like Alexandre Trudeau, Craig Kielburger, Spencer West, and Hannah Alper share their life experiences empowered every youth in the room to be an agent of change. WVH students report that WE Day truly was the greatest classroom in the world.
