Co-operative Young Leaders (CYL) is a series of week long summer camps for young people ages 13 to 18. This unique experiential learning program brings together youth from across Ontario, to learn in a safe and secure environment. CYL empowers youth to be explorers, trailblazers and visionaries, while equipping them with the change-making tools and skills they need to succeed in the world. Bringing together youth with established co-operative mentors creates a relationship that embraces and enhances their leadership potential. Participants develop self-confidence, learn from inspiring guest speakers, and have fun with traditional camp activities set in a non-judgemental atmosphere. Since its inception in 1967, over 3,500 young people have gone through the program, thanks to all the amazing co-operatives and credit unions that have supported it over the years!


Guided by our Co-operative Principles...
