Summer at the University of Manitoba means fun and fitness for kids at Mini U, and this year they’re taking the lead on developing an important skill.
“U Lead” challenges young Mini U campers to take on leadership roles within their programs, providing them with daily challenges to complete. The goal is to develop the next generation of leaders in physical activity, while teaching children about the importance of community and personal self-worth.
“Our program strives to create a community that embraces the strengths, skills and abilities of all its participants,” said Jay Gamey, Director of Mini U Programs.
“Children and youth are able to be the leaders in a variety of settings, creating an environment that is safe to explore their potential to meaningfully impact others.”
