  • And more….

View all Learning to Lead workshops for 2019-2020.


  • U of T undergraduate students from any college or faculty interested in getting more involved in the campus community and developing their leadership skills.
  • Students who are interested in applying for any type of peer mentor or leadership position on campus.

How it works

Attend any five of the Learning to Lead workshops that work within your daily schedule. If you complete five workshops within one academic year (fall/winter semesters), you will have Learning to Lead annotated on your CCR. 

Note: There is a maximum capacity for workshops, so please ensure that you attend all workshops you sign up for to avoid taking spaces from other students. If there is low registration some workshops may be cancelled. You will be given at least 48 hours notice if this happens. Thank you for your understanding.

What to expect: Each workshop is different, but all workshops focus on experiential learning (group engagement, connecting with others and individual reflection).
