MSU CLAY conference: past and present
April 25, 2019 at 12:00 pm
Every spring, MSU Creating Leadership Amongst Youth (CLAY) brings together high school students from across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area (GTHA) for a three-day, two-night leadership conference. From May 24 to 26 this year at Camp Trillium, conference delegates will participate in sessions, led by McMaster undergraduate students as Leadership Developers (LDs), centered on self-awareness, empowerment, personal development, and self-discovery. Registration is now open for anyone aged 13 - 18 in the GTHA.
Giancarlo Da-Re, CLAY Coordinator, believes that CLAY is a unique service that encourages self-exploration and growth within members of the McMaster community, whether those members reside on and off-campus.
“The CLAY Conference has evolved into a memorable weekend filled with opportunities for attendees to become equipped with personalized tools that will help them to feel empowered as leaders in their own communities,” says Da-Re. “While only lasting 3 days, the CLAY Conference has proven to be an impactful time in the lives of both delegates and staff.”
CLAY began in 1992 as a one-day conference for Hamilton high school students. Since then, it has grown with each year to support more delegates from areas outside of Hamilton, continuing to be an opportunity that fosters strong relationships between McMaster students and the surrounding community. The conference establishes a collaborative environment with a variety of activities and discussion-based sessions, allowing for delegates and Leadership Developers to learn from one another.
