    Becoming a Mini U Leader

    (Ages 13-16)

    Develop your skills in the areas of responsibility, behaviour management and goal setting and get a powerful glimpse into what it takes to be a leader on the Mini U team. Receive hands-on training through an in-depth orientation that includes learning behaviour management techniques, customer service, creating games for kids and teamwork. During the first week, our leaders will prepare you to lead at Mini U. During the second week, you’ll work alongside a Mini U mentor and assist leading one of our summer camps. The program will consist of two levels. Each level will unlock new responsibilities and opportunities. After a program level has been completed, you will have the chance to volunteer at our programs!
