What people are saying about the CA student rep program
"CA student reps stand out because they’re confident and comfortable talking to anyone. Even if it doesn’t come naturally to them, they’re always good communicators because they’ve developed this skill in the representative role."
"You can already see that our former CA student reps are going to go a long way at Baker Tilly Staples Rodway."

Check out the highlights from the 2018 One Young World Summit
In 2019 CA student reps Lontya Kalililo and Christian Bien attended the 4 day summit in London.
"There is so much power in coming together. It is important to give young people opportunities to work together for a better future, because we are the next generation. It is the kind of networking experience where simple connections could create so much good in the world."
"Delegates share their passions, stories, and experiences collectively - all of which I can learn from and then take back to my community. It's a fantastic opportunity to drive social impact within [my state], but also within the global community, too."
