Public Service Workshop

On Saturday March, 31st,  Mr. Ziad Aboultaif, Canadian (Federal) Member of Parliament for Edmonton-Manning joined the Ready to Work program as a guest speaker to talk about Public Service, the focus of this month. The MP shared his story as an immigrant, and what life steps he took to become the community leader he is today.  The event was a success and the I.M.P.A.C.T (Leadership) program took the chance to offer their students certificates in the presence of MP. The MP met youths one by one, and shared with us how he emigrated 28 years ago, only knowing how to say Good Morning to becoming a Member of the Canadian Parliament. The MP also learned more about AHC and gave students insight on how to volunteer and get educated to become a Public Servant. Youths learned that volunteering is key in the community, while there is no singular route of education for governance. It was refreshing to see newcomer girls interested in governance. view images form the event below!
