PUYO Leadership Conference Kick Off!
The annual Power Unit Youth Organization orientation took place on the 29th of November from 1:30-4:30PM at the Gibson Centre. We had such a big crowd of new applicants and returning members who wanted to learn more about what PUYO had to offer and the various teams that were recruiting. This year, we featured a “career fair” type layout to allow more interaction between team leads and applicants. Thank you to all that joined us !! See you again next year!
