For the past 15 years, Rotary Clubs across Niagara and upstate New York have sponsored up to five high school student leaders for a fun-filled weekend of personal leadership self-esteem and teamwork development activities. SLAPSHOT (Student Leadership Award Program for Students High On Training) has been designed for up to 100 students 15 – 18 years of age, fostering youth listening and interpersonal skills, assertiveness and problem-solving, team building and presentation skills. Quotes from past participants say it all,
"SLAPSHOT was a fantastic experience for me as a leader. I was very fortunate to spend the weekend with 100 teens, just like me, from Canada & the U.S."
The program involved outstanding speakers and exceptional leaders who motivated my creativity.
Typically held over a full spring weekend on the beautiful campus of The Adventure Learning Centre at Canterbury Hills in Ancaster, Ontario, registration opens in January and is available to any local St. Catharines resident aged 15-18 that you feel would benefit from this experience. There is no cost, requirement for affiliation with either our Club or with a Rotarian, just a willingness to participate actively in the program. If you know someone who you feel would qualify as a candidate, please contact Al Scales, Youth Chair at
