I’m rethinking that African proverb: “It takes a village to raise a child”. After last week, I think it may need to be reworded as, “It takes a child to raise a village”.
Of course the youth I met last week weren’t exactly children. They were leaders from Mayors’ Youth Councils and high schools across Niagara who were brought together to take part in “Talk, Teach, Take Action”, a symposium for young leaders organized by the Business and Education Council.
The unique forum was designed to connect youth leaders in Niagara with local elected officials.
