Yale Secondary presented with Leadership Cup

Abbotsford school recognized as having leadership program in B.C.

Yale Leadership Program students show off the Leadership Cup

The Yale Secondary Student Leadership Program was presented with the Leadership Cup earlier this month, which is awarded to the top high school leadership program in British Columbia.

The Yale Leadership Program is active in planning events for the school, volunteering in the community, and working on global initiatives.

Last year, the program hosted the BC Students Leadership Conference which brought over 400 students to Yale to take part in workshops and listen to keynote speakers over four days.

The students in the program also raised $25,000 for Canuck Place in Abbotsford, as well as collected food for the food bank, raised funds for Matthew’s House, donated over $1,700 to Fort McMurray relief, and participated in many other community events.

Leadership program students also volunteer at the school and plan many events for students to participate that promote positive school culture.
