Our mission is to

Seek out, recognize, and develop leadership potential in grade ten Central Ontario high school students.

COLS is 100 percent volunteer led and has been organizing an annual three-day leadership seminar to students of Central Ontario since 1982.

Experience the Journey
Our Goals

All of our student ambassadors’ leadership potential has given them a place at our annual seminar.

Ambassadors will further their leadership skills with their classmates and make a positive impact in their school and communities.

  • Empower

    Young leaders to be “the change they would like to see” in their schools and communities.

  • Foster

    Personal growth by promoting positive thinking, goal setting and community involvement.

  • Provide

    Provide young leaders with a forum to interact and develop lifelong relationships with other young leaders.

  • Encourage

    The development of critical thinking skills through independent and interactive activities.
