Aurora Offers Hybrid Leadership Course in Recreation and Sport

In collaboration with ASK Online Canada, the Town of Aurora will be delivering a female and gender diverse youth-only hybrid (in-person and online) Recreation and Healthy Active Living Leadership Course. Successful completion of this course provides students with a Grade 12 credit towards their high school diploma and certifications for youth leadership positions in recreation and sport, including HIGH FIVE Sport, Emergency First Aid, National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), Fundamental Movement Skills, and Leaders in Play. 

Through its Sport Plan, the Town of Aurora is committed to supporting more female and gender diverse leadership roles in sport. This university/college preparation course is a unique, blended-learning opportunity that involves 110 hours of combined in-person, online and community mentorship experiences. 

“This is a ground-breaking course that aligns with our priorities in the Sport Plan to advance women and gender diverse individuals in sport. The course curriculum provides all participants with resume building opportunities, while simultaneously increasing leadership and communication skills,” said Robin McDougall, Director of Community Services. “This unique course is an essential step in preparing the next generation of female and gender diverse leaders.” 

The course starts on February 15, 2023 and ends on April 26, 2023. The sessions will take place at The Aurora Public Library, 15145 Yonge Street. Applicants must reside in Aurora or the surrounding area with the intention to provide leadership or service to local community members through program delivery.
