What is Leaders in Training?

BYTE’s annual Leaders In Training (LIT) gathering was created as a space for youth from rural communities to build confidence, develop leadership skills, and connect with other young leaders from across the North! Our multi-day workshops incorporate discussions about social issues, activities, workshops and guest speakers that address everything from leadership to mental health and cultural connection. We strive to create a safe, inclusive environment for all our participants so they can feel comfortable to be themselves, share their stories, and learn from one another.
