Seven of Yale secondary’s leadership students and two teachers recently attended the Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC) in Weyburn, Saskatchewan.

This conference was attended by over 1,000 student leaders from across Canada. They gathered in Weyburn and heard from keynote speakers, such as ex CFL player Michael “Pinball” Clemons, humanitarian Dr. Samantha Nutt, environmentalist Geoff Green, and motivational speakers Phil Boyte and Mark Scharenbroich

The students also participated in workshops taught by educators from across Canada.

The purpose of the conference was to motivate, prepare, and empower Canadian students for present and future leadership in their schools, activities, workplaces, and communities. The Yale leadership program sends students to this conference every year. Next year, the conference will be hosted in Prince Edward Island.
