In light of the developments surrounding COVID-19, to ensure the safety of our staff and forum participants, the University of Ottawa has decided to cancel the Bled Future Achievers Leadership Forum for this upcoming summer.
Join our mailing list to stay up to date with the forum’s developments!
The Faculty of Social Sciences presents the Bled Future Achievers Leadership Forum! High-performing students will acquire knowledge and skills that will help them achieve personal success and stimulate their interest in pursuing post-secondary studies.
The objective of the Bled Future Achievers Leadership Forum is to bring together Canadian youth between 14 and 18 years old from Caribbean, Inuit, Métis and First Nations communities from across the country. This five-day forum will feature interactive workshops and group activities aimed at pushing participants out of their comfort zone. With a strong emphasis on teamwork, participants will interact with peers from across the country and benefit from lived experiences to help them become leaders of tomorrow. Engaging with diverse perspectives will help enrich the learning environment and allow participants to build on commonalities. After having participated in the forum, the future achievers will feel empowered, motivated and equipped to continue to lead in their communities.
The participants will also have opportunities to visit museums and heritage sites, take part in sport as well as Indigenous and Caribbean cultural activities. They will also enjoy some free time to explore Canada’s capital!
