Young voices continue to be heard and plan of actions have thus borne fruitful projects.Through a consensual, consultative and principle-oriented process, student leaders are given thechance to discuss key student leadership issues, study the current trends and challenges confronting theirfellow college students, brainstorm possible solutions and responses to such challenges and enhancethemselves with the necessary skills in order to concretize and realize such solutions and responses.The
