Douglas College wordmark

Leadership Training

From retreats to workshops to conferences, we want you to flex your leadership muscle! 

Were you a leader in high school and want to continue that role in College? Or are you a returning student who sees the value in learning about leadership before going out into the workplace instead of waiting to learn once you get there?

Gaining leadership skills during your time at Douglas will give you additional, valuable skills that employers are looking for such as: effective communication, problem solving and showing commitment.  We want to work with you to challenge yourself and seek out new opportunities you may have never realized you could have while at Douglas.
