Keith Baybayon | Student Trustee for 2020 - 2022

Keith is a secondary school student at Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School. He is an active community member and student leader who is dedicated to promoting inclusion and well-being among TCDSB’s 92,000 students in the City of Toronto. 


He is a passionate advocate for students and is dedicated to creating change in his community, and has served on his elementary school’s Catholic Student Leadership Impact Team (CSLIT), and is a member of Marshall McLuhan’s Student Council, Safe Schools Committee, and CSLIT. 


Keith is an active community member and volunteer and is involved in a number of youth-led organizations, such as Toronto Youth Cabinet, Youth Political Assembly, Toronto Public Library’s Youth Advisory Group, and Youth Mental Health Canada. Keith is also part of the CAMH National Youth Advisory Council (NYAC), an opportunity for youth to collaborate in research activities and education, and initiate their own youth-led projects. 


Keith hopes to continue the momentum started by previous student trustees, with a focus on mental health advocacy and resources for students, and eliminating the stigma that can be associated with mental health challenges. Keith was chosen to be a Co-Chair for the Ontario Student Trustees’ Association's (OSTA-AECO) Student Well-Being Working Group, where he will work to eliminate the barriers students face when it comes to their health, with a focus on marginalized groups and educating students and teachers with concepts of well-being. 


Keith is also dedicated to his Catholic faith, and was chosen to be OSTA-AECO’s Catholic Board Council Faith Ambassador, where he plans to lead faith-based initiatives and events to encourage student engagement, while incorporating student mental and physical well-being. 


Keith is a self-described “youth advocate that strives to create an inclusive and equitable school environment.” As Student Trustee, he plans to amplify the voices of TCDSB students, an encourage them to share their opinions and concerns. He looks forward to creating Catholic student leadership opportunities and working with students to represent their needs at the Board level.
