What members are saying about the BGYN:

More youth voices:

“My favourite things about the Network are collaborating with other youth and all the volunteer opportunities.”

“It’s the best way to meet with environmental club members from schools in Burlington to share ideas.”

“Being a part of the BGYN has been one of the best experiences of my life! I have learned so much, from both the youth and the facilitators of the group, about how to lead a sustainable lifestyle and make environmentally conscious decisions.”

“My experience as a BGYN member has been the absolute most motivating, empowering, educational and impactful volunteer opportunity I’ve ever had to date.”
