Home of the Leaders in Training (LIT) and Quest Programs!

Since 1982, the Leaders in Training (LIT) program has been providing youth with the opportunity to learn and develop leadership skills, all while giving back to the community through volunteer work. 

The program offers participants basic training in areas such as customer service, public speaking and strategies for working with children (behaviour management, leading games and crafts). Our goal is to provide a supportive and supervised environment for young people to learn and try out these skills as they discover more about themselves and their community. 

Once a participant has completed LIT, they are eligible for our Quest program, which is “level 2” of LIT. Quest participants take on additional leadership responsibilities with training the LIT’s and acting as role models for the new participants.
