Key Leader 2013 will be in its 5th year serving Eastern Ontario, and once again Key Clubbers have flocked to this sold out event. In 2003, Kiwanis International assembled a task force of professionals with more than 175 years of experience in teaching, coaching, developing and encouraging young leaders. They were asked to design a program that moves beyond where most other youth leadership programs stop. The result: Key Leader Program. This leadership retreat will be held at Circle Square Ranch in Arden, Ontario. Students alumni have said it's been a life-changing experience for them.
“As you all know, Elaine Wagman and I just returned from the Key Leader Program (KLP) held at Arden, Ontario last weekend. There were a total of 68 students participating. Governor Hope Marks, Program Chair Jim McIntosh, Event Coordinator Firma French, and several other chaperones attending past KLPs all unanimously agreed this was by far the best leadership training conference we have had across all sites in Eastern Canada. It is clear we have succeeded as a club to launch this fantastic initiative in the Ottawa area to great praise given the attending participants”. Robert Sirotek, Chair of Key Club Committee.
