Leadership For Life

The Leadership for Life program is 4 unique leadership programs that can be participated in by youth independently or successively. Programs will be targeted at youth ages 12- 18 years of age. The programs consist of a three Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada programs- Torch Club, Get B.U.S.Y., and Keystone and the inclusion of the Kawartha Lakes Leader In Training program.

The definition of youth leadership is the practice of teens exercising authority over themselves or others. Though this definition is clear and concise the process in which leaders are developed requires the support of role model and genuine youth engagement. 

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes believes that through genuine youth engagement youth can gain skills and knowledge to be leaders in their community and to their peers. It is the belief of the Boys & Girls Club that each youth can become a leader in their own unique way.

The Boys & Girls Club movement has the goal of supporting youth to become adults that:

  • Are ensuring that they are managing their health and well-being.
    • Have positive and caring relationships.
    • Attain educational goals and have the ability to achieve dreams.
    • Are self-sufficient and independent.
    • Are meaningfully participating in their community and civil society.
