Welcome to the Canadian Student Leadership Association’s

STUDENT LEADERSHIP CERTIFICATION PROGRAM

For the last 35 years, CSLA has worked with student leaders across Canada through the Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC) and more recently, Horizons Leadership Conferences and Portage Leadership. Our leadership training spans from coast to coast to coast, and have heard from you, our student leaders, that you want more specific leadership training.

Introducing CSLA’s SLCP

The SLCP is a 4-level self-directed leadership program for student leaders across Canada aged 13-18 that covers all facets of student leadership from the early stages of planning to facilitating events to community outreach, school culture and climate and understanding more about yourself as a leader. Learn more below about how to register, and some frequently asked questions about the program.

About Leader Prep

Leader Prep is a summer SLCP Program that will be delivered in a hybrid model. Levels 1 to 3 have been adapted to allow collaborative teamwork among students synchronously. Students will have the opportunity to apply the content they learn in each level through various activities provided by SLCP instructors. During synchronous meetups, students will be able to take on a leadership role where they will lead their peers through activities. Leader Prep allows students to use concepts they are taught in an inclusive and safe environment to hone and further improve their leadership skills. Sign up today!!

LEADER PREP: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How often will we have synchronous meetups in each Level?

As this program will have a synchronous component to it, Leader Prep is expected to have 

2-3 synchronous sessions per week. 

What if I cannot make it to some sessions?

Let an instructor know! We want to make this program beneficial for you, so we will work with you to make that happen!

Will I have work to do outside of the synchronous session?

You may be asked to review content in preparation for the synchronous session. All activites done in synchronous sessions are based on content in the SLCP level, thus it would strongly benefit you to review the content in advance.

In addition, you may be asked to prepare things in advance to synchronous meetups (Don't worry! We promise it'll still be fun!)

How many do I need to register for?

As many as you'd like!! You may sign up for 1, 2, or 3 levels! However, since this is part of the SLCP, you must have completed the previous level before doing a higher level.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to work on the program on specific days and times?

This program is a self-directed study, which means you can work at your own pace throughout.

Every Thursday, we will host a virtual meeting within the program to meet with student leaders and discuss what they have learned so far, what’s next, and connect students from across Canada with ideas, activities and open collaboration time! Times are to be determined and will be shared within the program.

What is the cost of the Student Leadership Certification Program?

CSLA Member School Students: $25 per Level (plus $1 online processing fee).

For example, if you enrol in all 4 Levels, your total program cost will be $104

 

CSLA Non-Member School Students: $40 per level

For example, if you enrol in all 4 Levels, your total program cost will be $164

Can I register for all 4 Levels at once?

We recommend that you register and pay for one level at a time. This program is a progression program that requires each level to be completed in sequential order. Once you complete each level, you will be invited to register for the next level.

If you would like to register for all four levels at once, please email slcp@studentleadership.ca to arrange this type of registration.

What is in it for me?

The CSLA SLCP is a 4-level certification program offered by the Canadian Student Leadership Association.

Following the completion of each level, students will be awarded a certificate of completion, and receive access to the resources from the program in a Student Google Drive. Once all four levels are completed, students will receive an additional certificate recognizing this accomplishment and their dedication to personal development in leadership.

    • The SLCP can be done by students on their own time and through their own initiative, or through their classroom/school. This program can help compliment in-class or extra-curricular learning. Our goal is that our weekly online meetings will help students by:

 

  • Reviewing their work with their peers and SLCP instructors

  • Making face to face connections with students from across Canada

  • Learning about leadership from valued community partners

  • Discussing their goals and next-steps on their own leadership journeys

Our program instructors for Level I will be available at any time through the program, and are committed to ensuring student leaders get the best experience, education and personal leadership development from this program! Although this is a self-directed program, our instructors will be along for the ride to assist whenever needed.
