The education and empowerment of youth are priorities that have dominated Trudeau's professional and personal life. Shortly after completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at McGill University, he moved to Vancouver to earn a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of British Columbia. For the next four years, he devoted himself to teaching children of all ages, in public and private schools, in a range of subjects, including english, french and math.
Today, Trudeau is the chair of Katimavik, Canada’s leading national youth volunteer-service program, where he works to increase the engagement of Canada’s youth towards their country, their communities and their environment.
In addition to Katimavik, Trudeau is involved with the Canadian Avalanche Foundation, and wilderness groups such as the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.
His work with a large number of diverse organizations and levels of government keeps him traveling extensively to help ensure that Canada is prepared to meet the challenges and responsibilities its future holds.
