Empowering youth by helping them develop core leadership skills, integrity, and compassion through experiential learning and mentorship.
The Youth Leadership Millennium (YLM) is an 8-month program dedicated to helping young people aged 15-30 in areas of personal and leadership development.
Since 1998, we have helped transform the lives of about 1000 graduates.
• Personal development
• Leadership development
• Community awareness
• Adventure expedition
• Mental health and wellbeing
We are a diverse and inclusive program. We encourage youth from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds to apply.
“Through fun activities and projects, I made friends with my peers and see them beyond YLM. I am grateful for what YLM has given me. I think that many young residents or citizens of Canada should know about YLM!”
“YLM feels like a new page and new beginnings, where I can build a sense of community.”
“YLM is a place of unity, where people of all cultures can connect.”
Each year, we organize a series of activities, workshops, and events that are not only fun, but also encourage personal growth, increase participants’ social awareness and physical strength, and facilitate creative and positive change in our community!
We take a holistic approach to develop well-rounded leadership at YLM. Activities may include:
• Team-based community projects
• Learning the ropes of public speaking
• Outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking
• Life skills workshops on communication and conflict resolution
• Volunteer opportunities and projects
• Individualized coaching sessions with a YLM Youth Worker
YLM runs as a hybrid program with both online and in-person programming. Contact us directly to register for an online information session.
Upon successful completion of the YLM program, youth participants will receive:
We’d love to see you at one of our scheduled sessions! These are designed to provide prospective participants and parents with a bit more information about what we have in store for the year. This is also the place for you to ask questions and for us to answer them.
All information sessions are held via Zoom. Please contact us to register for an information session.
We will be hosting four separate YLM groups with different start dates this year.
Our first cohort is anticipated to start June, 2023 – spots are filling up fast so be sure to register ASAP!
An 8-month program isn’t a small commitment – we think it’s important for us to learn more about each other and make sure that our goals match with yours!
After you complete the online registration form, we will contact you to schedule an interview via Zoom.
