Meet Some Of Our Young Reporters
Some of our Young Reporters share how YRE Canada has inspired them to make a difference for the environment.
"Through YRE, I have learned that everything I put my mind to can be achieved. YRE has changed my life by teaching me various skills, providing me with a platform, and most importantly, giving me the courage to stand and speak up for what I believe in."
