Learning to Lead™ is a leadership program open to self-identified girls in high school (Grades 10-12). Participants gain confidence through a series of interactive workshops and activities. They leave the program with greater self-awareness, and the inspiration to take on new challenges and opportunities. This interactive program invites young women to develop a leadership mindset in a supportive and fun environment.
Currently accepting applications for Learning to Lead™ STEM (October 2022) and Learning to Lead™ Trades (November 2022).
To support youth interested in following non-traditional paths, we are offering STEM and Trades programs this year. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their confidence through virtually delivered workshops that identify their key strengths and core values, attain greater self-awareness and gain a supportive network of friends and mentors working in STEM and Trades. The program is open to self-identified girls in Grades 10-12.
Piloted in 2021, Minerva's Learning to Lead™ STEM program is for self-identified girls who want to develop their leadership skills and are curious to explore careers in the STEM fields. We're accepting applications for the 2022 cohort being offered in October. Apply before October 12, 2022.
Minerva's Learning to Lead™ Trades program is for self-identified girls who are looking to gain confidence in their leadership, and are curious to learn about the career prospects in Trades. The 2022 program is being offered in November. Apply before November 14, 2022.
Learning to Lead™ is a four-week program with 2-hour Zoom sessions every week.
This program is all about helping youth to identify the leadership potential already inside of them. During the four sessions of the program, students learn some of the fundamentals of the leadership mindset, how to identify and lead from their strengths and values, how connecting with a mentor can support their leadership journey, and how to take action with confidence. There are presentations, guest speakers, interactive activities, and lots of space for small group discussion.
Learning to Lead™ includes a series of workshops with engaging facilitation, group-based discussion, individual reflection, and hands-on activities. You will also gain insight from guest speakers and mentors – accomplished leaders who share their candid perspectives on their personal experiences.
One of the best things about Learning to Lead™ is having the opportunity to learn alongside other young women. Over the weekend, your cohort will grow into a tightly-knit group, enabling you to connect with other young leaders from across BC.
The girls in your cohort will become your friends and your support network. This is one of the lasting benefits of the program!
