When I first applied to attend the Courage to Lead for Young Leaders and Activists retreat, I had also just learned that I was selected from thousands of applicants to speak at TedX Toronto 2017. Although I was passionate and knowledgable about my topic, I was a bit nervous. The Young Leaders retreat gave me new Courage and clarity to show up fully—not just on stage but in my work since.
Courage to Lead for Young Leaders and Activists was a life-changing retreat for me. There I was able to see in the facilitators the type of leader I wanted to become. They led our group with such grace and humility that I felt safe and engaged from the moment I attended the first session.
This retreat allowed me to connect with other young leaders across North America as we embarked on a meaningful, intentional, spiritual journey together. We will forever have a bond with one another.

Courage to Lead for Young Leaders & Activists
Applications Due Feb 16
Connecting to my inner teacher was something I only read about until this retreat. At the Courage to Lead retreat I was able to connect to the depths of my soul which allowed me to get some much need clarity on what lies ahead in my future.
If you are someone looking to connect with others and yourself on a deeper level I highly recommend this retreat. Change your lens, change your life.
