For Graduates of LI
Leadership II is an adventurous program for youth who love the outdoors and welcome personal challenges! LII involves weeknight sessions and weekend trips from late January through to the end of April.
This program is for youth who are keen on honing their leadership skills to carry forward into future employment or educational opportunities. LII builds directly upon LI, increasing both hard and soft skills that are relevant to youth and community leadership in the outdoors.
Weekend trips focus on both group leadership and outdoor recreation skills. These skills are vital for the Leadership II winter camping and canoe outtrips. Participants are also given the opportunity to help facilitate Sasamat Outdoor Centre's April Day Camp.
Leadership II is open to past Leadership I participants. Youth in high school or first year college, who have leadership training and/or significant work experience with children will be considered.
