Chaleur Region students selected to travel to Montreal 'La Journee UNIS'

Fourteen local students will be heading to Montreal next week for La Journee UNIS or WE Day.

The event includes internationally renowned artists and speakers, and offers young people the tools and inspiration they need to take social action, empower others, and transform lives.

Nepisiguit Volunteer Travel Group's Michel Doucet tells the Northern Light that the students, from both the Anglophone North and Francophone North East school districts, were selected based on their involvement in school activities or their participation in the 2017 Chaleur Walk for Water event.

Le Journee UNIS takes place next Tuesday.
