Northeast Community Conversation has put a lot of volunteer time and effort to make this possible for the London community and we hope that through respectful and intellectual dialogue, we can learn from one another; share perspectives, concerns, insights; and discuss in a open but safe space lived experiences and issues parents, students, teachers and those who are part of support system, to help children and youth achieve success in their daily lives - academic and otherwise.

Respectfully yours,

Jacqueline Fraser
