Empowering youth leaders today


Here at SSUNS, our mission to empower the youth leaders of today is twofold. SSUNS offers a platform on which youth leaders bring their unique perspectives and identities to discuss and collaborate in order to discover innovative solutions to global issues. Through honest dialogue and organised debate, youth leaders at SSUNS strengthen valuable skills such as critical thinking and productive communication in an environment built upon the value of mutual respect for diverse ideas. Following the conference, SSUNS participants should return to their communities confident in their ability to effect change in areas they are inspired to do so.

SSUNS provides numerous leadership and skill-building opportunities for the four hundred McGill University students who, over a ten-month period, organise and prepare each edition of SSUNS. Our commitment to ensuring a positive and formative experience for each member of our staff is the way in which we hope to embody the empowerment of youth leaders. The creativity, enthusiasm and diligence of our staff has resulted in the flourishing of SSUNS into the most innovative conference we can offer our participants.
