We are pleased to announce our first “Emerging Leaders Development Day”!

We are pleased to announce our first “Emerging Leaders Development Day”!


The Hope Team is pleased to announce the addition of our first Emerging Leaders Development Day on Monday, September 29.  This year will be the first of a three year commitment to invest in Durham Region’s Youth by holding a one day development leadership day for young leaders Ages 16 to 24.

We are seeking 60 young leaders that would like to attend as the guest of The Day of Hope and Leadership Team and take part in an interactive, empowering, and motivating day. The event  will start at 9am and end at 4pm. This year’s Theme for the Day of Hope and Leadership (on September 30) is  Just Lead. It Starts with You and Ends with Others.  We will be taking the focus of this theme to the youth event.

Attendees will be lead by three amazing young leaders, Dan Walters from UOIT, Travis Dutka from 360 Incentives and Katie Zeppieri, the founder of Girls Talk and Make your Mark.  All 60 young leaders that attend the day will also be invited, as our guest, to attend the second day, the main event on September 30th at the Ajax Convention Centre with over 250 senior leaders.

Not only will the youth have the opportunity to tap into and develop their own leadership skills, they will be challenged to create a community project that they will work on together.  The Day of Hope and Leadership is committed to mentoring and developing leaders at every stage of their lives.

If you would like to sponsor this event or if you know of a youth who may be a good candidate for this event, please contact for more information.
