“It meant so much that my school had the opportunity to learn and grow in such a positive and innovative environment.” Vienna, Medicine Hat High School

Your role

Your main role is to help students make the most of their experience, learn along with them and facilitate leadership back in your school. The teachers attending Generate 2017 will be the primary connection to Inside Education. The students will be under your supervision and are ultimately your responsibility. There is no need to worry because we have a jam-packed program to keep them busy.  Of course, safety is a priority! Check out our Summit Safety page for more details. It is expected that 2 teachers from each school will attend the summit.

Getting your team together

Whether your students have come to you, you have a group of exceptional learners in mind, or you want to get an application together and select students later, you can apply for Generate 2017 now. Teams are comprised of 2 teachers and 4 students.

*note student rooms are based on double occupancy therefore equal gender ratios are required and students must be 14 years or older at the time of the summit.
