Provide your teen the opportunity to discover their leadership potential in an enriched and empowering virtual space this summer!

Our virtual Youth Leadership Certificate program (Leaders-in-Training) provides a safe online environment for teens to learn, make new friends, while being supported by experienced program facilitators comprised of U of T staff, faculty, alumni, camp counsellors and community partners.  

The leadership program provides comprehensive character-building workshops in which youth develop critical thinking skills by discussing and learning about a variety of global topics, while honing leadership skills completing a series of self-reflective exercises, and working in small groups.  Most importantly, they build confidence, self-awareness, and the motivation and tools to set and accomplish goals while being their authentic selves.

Note:  The Leadership certificate program requires mandatory attendance for daily programming from 9am – 12pm.  Attendance is optional for interactive activities offered from 1-2pm and 1-2:30pm.  Youth will receive certificate of completion on last day of program.
