The Leadership Lab
Trinity’s Leadership Lab is an intensive summer leadership training program that offers youth summer employment, volunteer work, and the opportunity to heighten their leadership skills. Trinity draws together teams of youth representing the diversity of their communities in urban and rural settings. In this intergenerational program, youth become skilled in global competencies, conducting social scans and resource inventories of their local communities, and developing a service mindset through the creation of youth-led local projects.
Fostering relationships through building intergenerational mentoring partnerships
Connecting with community experientially through asset mapping and service projects
Practicing compassionate leadership
Building global competencies and transferable skills through personal development
Youth collaborate in the development of leadership training programs and resource materials, create outreach strategies to engage their peers in meaningful volunteer service opportunities, and foster intergenerational relationships in their local neighbourhoods. They build skills in mentoring, community networking, and partnership building towards the practice of compassionate leadership.
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
