The Optimist Club of Hamilton is a long time supporter of this leadership training seminar for Grade 10 students. In 2016 we sponsored two students to attend this incredible event which is held at the Mississauga Campus of the University of Toronto during the last weekend of May. The mission of COLS is to spread positive thinking through collaboration, communication, and teamwork. Here is what they had to say:

From April, a student from Winston Churchill High School, Hamilton:
"My favourite part of the weekend was walking in here knowing nobody and walking out with some amazing new best and lifelong friends. Although I am very shy, it was still a life changing experience."

From Shyanna, from Westmount Secondary School, Hamilton:
"The Central  Ontario Leadership program allowed me to meet magnificent people from all over Ontario. I now know what real leadership, positivity, confidence and friendship is. Thank you for giving me a brighter future."


The Popsicle Bridge Building Competition for High School Students inspires all students with engineering interest to use their knowledge and ingenuity to win a Scholarship.
