SAMS student Ashley Moore is one of only 24 Grade 11 students from across the province that has been selected to represent SAMS at the Learning to Lead Conference for Women at UBC in May.
The Learning to Lead BC Program is an annual weekend program held at the University of British Columbia. It provides young girls, emerging leaders and graduate students with the opportunity to be mentored by accomplished women leaders in business, government and the community.
The program brings together 24 Grade 11 students, 24 emerging leaders – young and transitioning professionals and 24 business and community leaders from around the province to interact and learn from one another through a series of workshops and activities. A special effort is extended to ensure inclusion of the Aboriginal women’s community.
Workshop activities augment the leadership skills of the participants. Areas of concentration include self-awareness, values, community, personality type consciousness, team-building, creativity and communication. Participants make leadership commitments to themselves about their community as an outcome of the program. Tools are provided to help participants achieve their personal, educational, and career goals.
Since its inception in 2002, the Learning to Lead BC Program has touched hundreds of lives with 1272 Program Participants, 75 Program Facilitators, 35 Feature Speakers, and 200 Organizing Committee Volunteers.
