A Message from the Leaders/Chaperones

Lou and Rick LeRoux

As retired Physical and Health Education Teachers, we have a combined 60 years of teaching and coaching students from grades nine to thirteen. Over the years, we have enjoyed watching the growth of young people as they leave high school and either enter post secondary education or the world of work. Involvement in the Barrie Youth Ambassador Program offers us this same opportunity to witness growth in young teens as they experience cultural differences and similarities around the world. We look forward to meeting and working with the successful candidates for the 2007-2008 program who will travel to Taizhou, China.
