Meet the NSN’s Founding Regional Chairs!

The National Student Network (NSN) was conceived in January 2014 when four students wanted to bring youth-relevant opportunities into a well-organized database. We wanted to collect and curate events, conferences and programs and disseminate that information to Canadian students. In the three ensuing months, we have worked hard to create an intuitive online platform that not only serves the aforementioned purpose, but also enhances the education of Canadian students through crowd-sourced peer-mentorship and public discussions. To truly achieve a network that is national – one that connects students to meaningful opportunities and to each other, we extended an open call in January for Regional Chairs, who would oversee the operations of the NSN in their own communities and serve as the primary provincial liaison for the NSN. After reading many applications and conducting several Skype interviews, we are proud to announce our founding Regional Chairs:
