GroupThe world’s top youth leaders will gather at the 2014 Next Generation Leaders Forum from August 17-22 at Trent University in Peterborough, ON. Students from across the globe will connect with experts from business and academia to develop new perspectives, ideas and skill-sets during this unique, once in a lifetime opportunity, and eight Junior Achievers from the Cayman Islands will be joining them.

Next Generation Leaders delegates have been individually selected as top performers in Junior Achievement’s Company Programme, and chosen to attend for their high potential and the opportunity to advance their career. These students are planning to embark on their post-secondary ambitions with specific interest in business-related careers.

The NGL experience is a unique blend of personal growth, practical experience and confidence building. Delegates face real business challenges and develop strategies in collaboration with their global peers, university faculty and industry volunteers. Having developed success skills that are essential to making their dreams a reality, students return to their schools and communities with a new perspective on what is possible. The relationships and life skills they build last a lifetime as they progress into higher education and the workforce.

Junior Achiever Bianca Tibbetts spoke on CITN/Cayman27 on Friday (8) saying she hoped to compare the experience she had with other Junior Achievers from around the world. “I would also like to come back with knowledge of various different things and be able to actually speak about my experience to other people and encourage them to join Junior Achievement,” she said.

The official host of Next Generation Leaders 2014 is Trent University. It was founded on the ideal of collaborative learning that’s personal, purposeful and transformative. Consistently recognized nationally for leadership in teaching, research and student satisfaction, Trent attracts excellent students from across the country and around the world. Here, undergraduate and graduate students connect with faculty, staff and their peers through diverse communities that span classrooms, disciplines, hands-on research, co-curricular and community-based activities. Across all disciplines, Trent brings critical, integrative thinking to life every day. In a learning environment that builds life-long passion for inclusion, leadership and social change, Trent’s students, alumni, faculty and staff are engaged global citizens who are catalysts in developing sustainable solutions to complex issues.
