Ontario Catholic Student Leadership Conference

Written by: Natasha Iaboni, Jr. Student Trustee

Every two years, the Ontario Catholic Student Leadership Conference (OCSLC) is held, bringing together nearly 400 secondary students from across Ontario. This year, OCSLC was held in London, Ontario, at Brescia University as well as Kings's University from May 7-9. Thirty students from YCDSB were in attendance. Students had the opportunity to listen to wonderful guest speakers, participate in workshops centred around Catholic Leadership and values, and meet with Catholic student leaders from all over the province. YCDSB students were honoured to have been in attendance.

Our students are especially excited because the York Catholic District School Board will host the Ontario Catholic Student Leadership Conference 2017! Together with our student leaders who make up the YSCPC, and student trustees, we are looking forward to organizing the conference. Our student leaders will be involved in the planning, including the opening and closing ceremonies, liturgical celebrations, securing keynote speakers and organizing the break-out sessions and workshops. The event will be held here in York Region!
