Working with civic, educational and corporate partners at the local, national and global level, GSLS will be a life-changing marquee event for the future leaders of the world. The event is run by Canada’s premier student leadership organization, Youth Leadership Camps Canada, and will be filled with substantive information, real people, making real change, and an unbridled dose of positive energy.

The Outcome? To create, to change the conversation, to bring the most inspiring messages of hope and leadership to thousands of world wide youth leaders! To create a stupendous positive ripple in the world! These leaders will take over the downtown core of one Canada’s greatest cities, and leave a legacy of leadership behind. The first ever GSLS will be an event that the game-changers of tomorrow will not soon forget.

The Global Student Leadership Summit recognizes that global change can start in the school house, and from there spreads to communities, countries and the planet. As such, GSLS has partnered with The Global Goals Educator Task Force to insure that our student and educator content reflects and reinforces the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 essential and achievable goals are woven into the fabric of our speakers’ talks and workshop presentations in a myriad of ways. Whether motivating students to make positive personal change, or inspiring them to larger actions in their school and global or local communities, the Global Goals provide a framework for the leaders of today and their educators to make a real difference. Every nation on earth agreed to this hope-filled plan for a better world. We believe the Goals can and should flow through all learning and leadership development.
