Leadership Inside Out

Thank you to our 2022 participants! See you next year in summer 2023.

Build your strengths as a communicator, relationship-builder, teammate, and community member at this summer program. 


Who is Leadership Inside Out for?

If you hesitate to think of yourself as a leader, come explore new ways to make change from the inside out. 

ILead’s Leadership Inside Out Program offers U of T Engineering students an opportunity to explore new angles of leadership, and to forge their own unique leadership pathways. The program is for students who hesitate to claim a 'leadership identity’, and for whom traditional leadership models may not always resonate.
