Recreation & Healthy Active Living Leadership

High School Credit Course

There is a need for more females in leadership positions in sport including coaches, officials and administrators. Through the work of the Sport Plan, Town of Aurora is committed to supporting more females to step into those roles and are excited for the 2nd year of our Recreation & Healthy Active Living Leadership high school credit course.In collaboration with ASK Online Canada, Town of Aurora will be delivering a female and gender diverse hybrid (face-to-face and online) leadership course where students can obtain a grade 12 credit towards their high school diploma.

Students will explore the benefits of providing a welcome, safe, and positive space for lifelong participation in physical activity and develop leadership skills that contribute to a successful participant experience. In addition, students will apply their learning to host a community event and provide mentoring opportunities that enhance the health and well-being of others.

Registration closes on January 31, 2024.
