One of the ways that Engineers Without Borders has chosen to create lasting change in the community is to invest in young people so that they become the leaders of tomorrow.
Once per semester, all of EWB Canada's francophone chapters meet for a weekend to attend conferences on various issues and to participate in workshops that give them more tools to carry out impact projects. At the same time, it is an opportunity for members to develop a network of contacts that extends beyond their own university.
