Co-operative Young Leaders Program Experience
Co-operative Young Leaders is a summer experience unlike any other.

When I first received the invitation to apply to CYL from the Police Credit Union, I had never heard about this program, but the letter was intriguing. As I looked more in depth on what it provides and what they teach the participants, I saw so many opportunities in attending.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that Devin just got back from her week at CYL. She had a great time and met some really terrific people. She has sent you a letter to the Toronto office thanking you for the sponsorship and telling you about her experience.
She was on the collective memories committee and below is the link for the video they made about their week.

Thanks again for sponsoring Devin. She said that this week has changed her life. We hope that you will consider continuing her sponsorship next year.
