Collegiate Leadership Competition
"Competitions and performances are high-impact learning experiences. A coach would not ask a college athlete to compete on the field without weeks or months of practice. Yet, we ask students to sit in a classroom and learn theories and terms, but rarely provide opportunities to put them into practice until they begin their first job." - Collegiate Leadership Competition
Participating in the Collegiate Leadership Competition
CLC participants share one important quality: a passion for leadership. As a participant, you will develop leadership skills and gain an opportunity to build your resume and professional network while representing your college or university. This life-changing opportunity will increase your understanding of personal strengths and areas for improvement by stretching you to the boundaries of your knowledge, skills, and abilities.
Develop Leadership Skills: Become a better leader, follower and team member. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, leadership, ability to work in a team, communication skills, and problem solving skills are the top four attributes that organizations are seeking in university and college graduates. This program was designed with participants in mind, and ensures that you are learning skills that will help set you apart professionally.
Build Your Resume: Participate in an experience that helps you better communicate the value you bring to an employer. CLC will ensure that you stand out professionally by advancing your leadership skills and adding a valuable experience to your resume. Upon completion, the CLC program is available to be added to your co-curricular record.
Grow Your Network: Connect with a community of students, coaches, and corporate and community leaders from across Ontario.
Have Fun While Learning: The CLC curriculum is active, experiential and designed to build skill. Engage with innovative concepts, videos, practice outlines, and activities.
Represent Your School: Represent your college/university in a provincial competition.

What to expect for 2020-2021
In 2021, we are entering the world of virtual leader and leadership development. During times of change and unrest, leadership becomes more and more important. This year, we are excited to explore the realm of virtual leadership, and what working virtually means for us and our teams post-COVID19. Unlike the past, the 2021 competition will occur over a period of months. To prepare for this competition, we will meet weekly to learn the knowledge and skills presented in the CLC curriculum. During three virtual competitions, our team will be scored on their knowledge and skills against our global competitors.
