CENTENNIAL LEADERSHIP<br />

ACADEMY <strong>2019</strong>-20 YEARBOOK<br />

CLA <strong>2019</strong>-20 YEARBOOK | 1


The Centennial <strong>Leadership</strong> <strong>Academy</strong> (CLA) is a hub of resources and programs<br />

designed to develop the leader in every student.<br />

Our Mission is to help Centennial students develop as leaders on their personal,<br />

professional and community journeys, acting as a catalyst between students,<br />

faculty, employers and communities.<br />

The <strong>2019</strong>-<strong>2020</strong> was a year of many firsts for the CLA. From a remodeled leadership<br />

retreat to launching two Toastmasters clubs and developing new leadership<br />

workshops for ongoing student leadership success, the CLA created, engaged<br />

and explored with you.<br />

It is now time to celebrate!<br />

Through this yearbook of CLA highlights, we wanted to thank YOU, the students who<br />

have made the <strong>2019</strong>-<strong>2020</strong> year so memorable.<br />

Enjoy – and stay in touch!<br />

STUDENT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE<br />

October <strong>2019</strong><br />

The new academic year kicked off with the planning of annual Student <strong>Leadership</strong> Conference. Organized<br />

by students for students, the conference was brought to the Centennial community by the Student<br />

<strong>Leadership</strong> Committee comprised of Centennial students Geina, Aslihan, Vipan, Jun, Denis, Maria and<br />

co-chaired by Matt and Lubana, our Student Co-Chairs working with the Co-Curricular Student Learning<br />

and Development team.<br />

Conference Testimonial<br />

I was privileged to work with a strong and spirited team of student leaders to plan,<br />

organize and facilitate through icebreakers, ideation and innovation. This student<br />

development experience added value to my life. I would like to encourage our<br />

student community to join us for the next Student <strong>Leadership</strong> Conference.<br />

Geina, Student <strong>Leadership</strong> Conference Committee <strong>2019</strong><br />

Conference Committee, October <strong>2019</strong><br />

Inspired by the theme Finding the Leader Within, the conference included hands-on activities to develop<br />

the leadership mindset and practices students could apply in their daily lives. We met with and learned<br />

from leaders and peers from across the Centennial community and completed workshops that matched<br />

our own leadership interests.<br />

CLA FIRST: For the first time, the Student <strong>Leadership</strong> Conference offered childcare for children of students<br />

during the event. This free service enabled a greater number of students to participate in the events we<br />

hold outside of regular school hours. Thank you to Jordan Robinson and the Athletics and Recreation team<br />

for providing such a fun day for our youngest participants!<br />

STUDENT LEADERSHIP RETREAT<br />

In February <strong>2020</strong> we hosted the first ‘Centennialized’ Student <strong>Leadership</strong> Retreat, an intensive off-campus<br />

leadership development experience. Student leaders spent three days and two nights at the Cedar Glen<br />

Outdoor Centre in Schomberg, Ontario.<br />

Students first met each other at the pre-retreat in mid-February, where we all, facilitators included, learned<br />

about our DISC profiles -- our preferred behavioural styles as related to tasks and people. Students met<br />

their retreat “buddy” and set out on a mission to make the most out of this unique experience.<br />

On Monday, February 24, we boarded a COLTS bus (how fun! with seatbelts!) and soon arrived at the<br />

expansive Cedar Glen YMCA. We all settled into our comfy rooms and began what was a deeply engaging<br />

and unforgettable experience. Through group, team and individual activities, we gained insights into our<br />

emotional and social intelligence, discussed our conflict resolution styles, worked on our personal mission<br />

and self-care practices, and took ample time for reflection and connection with others.<br />

The weather allowed for some incredible outdoors experiences: we had a bonfire, complete with smores<br />

and songs, we tried snowshoeing, archery and a super fun outdoor maze. We played games and talked<br />

until late into the night.<br />

The retreat made us a tighter Centennial community and more capable agents of change and leadership.<br />

The retreat’s facilitators – Ella Bates, Rob Hurtubise, Lynda O’Donovan, Annie Sun and Magdalena<br />

Goledzinowska – express their gratitude to the student participants who made this trip an exceptional<br />

growth experience for all.<br />

Testimonials from retreat participants<br />

“The facilitators did a great job to include the theory with the interactive activities. The<br />

participation of my fellow students was on a higher level than I expected.”<br />

“I got to know about the perspective of different people. I made some amazing<br />

connections and the retreat gave me an opportunity and direction to self-reflect. I<br />

understand and respect everyone’s thinking even more. I was amazed to see the<br />

energy of facilitators. I thank everyone from bottom of my heart to make this retreat<br />

wonderful and memorable.”<br />

“I liked the fact that the students chosen to attend came from all walks of life, all<br />

backgrounds and [had] many different things to bring to the table.”<br />

TOASTMASTERS<br />

Toastmasters is an international organization devoted to developing public speaking, communication<br />

and leadership skills. In <strong>2019</strong>, the CLA launched and soon after chartered two Toastmasters clubs at the<br />

College. The clubs met each week on campus and continued meeting online when Centennial started<br />

virtual teaching and learning in mid-March <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

Speak Up Centennial and Voice of Centennial were led by two unique and dedicated student executive<br />

teams. We hosted guests from around the world, organized workshops with award-winning speakers, and<br />

heard some and heard some truly exceptional speeches from our members. Most of all, we grew some<br />

phenomenal friendships – our bonds now make us a Centennial Toastmasters Family!<br />

Over 160 unique students attended a Toastmasters meeting this past year, and our typical weekly<br />

meetings have about 15-20 participants.<br />

This first year, we hosted our first ever club speech and evaluation competitions, all part of the annual<br />

International Speech Contest organized by Toastmasters International. Two of our members, Dujavanthi<br />

Sebastian and Mercy Mamman, moved on to Area competitions, placing in the top three at this higher level<br />

as well!<br />

Toastmasters Testimonials<br />

The impact of Toastmasters on me as a student, professional and individual is a<br />

journey I can never forget. Strong communication skills are so valuable irrespective of<br />

one’s chosen career path or personal situation.<br />

Mercy Mamman, Voice of Centennial club member<br />

Winner of the Club Speech Contest and 3rd place winner of the Area Contest,<br />

February <strong>2020</strong><br />

I have metamorphosed from a nervous introvert into a daring and confident speaker, an<br />

avid communicator and leader. I credit this personal transformation to the Toastmasters<br />

community started at Centennial in the Fall of <strong>2019</strong>. Communication makes us uniquely<br />

human, and now I feel I have the clarity, the succinctness and the comfort when I speak<br />

in public, both personally and professionally.<br />

LEADERSHIP PASSPORT<br />

The <strong>Leadership</strong> Passport Centennial’s online tool for exploring and articulating your leadership journey,<br />

grew by leaps and bounds this past year! A total of 252 students earned the Distinction in <strong>Leadership</strong><br />

between Summer <strong>2019</strong> and Summer <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

We know the Passport makes a difference because you tell us! We read and listen to your reflections on<br />

what matters to you as a leader and what helped you grow.<br />

I started, and finished the <strong>Leadership</strong> Passport because I wanted<br />

to see growth within myself and this activity allowed me to start<br />

thinking about what I need to do to strengthen my emotional and<br />

mental responses to daily interactions within my life.<br />

DAMIAN JOSEPH<br />

The Passport helped reform my lifestyle as a whole. As a<br />

business owner it was an entire eye opener.<br />

KRISHAN RATNAVELU<br />

I can empower my skills and acquire new tools that will help me<br />

become an inspiring leader to guide the management of positive<br />

changes in my community to transform lives.<br />

KATHERINE URETA<br />

I have learnt so much about myself while completing the<br />

<strong>Leadership</strong> Passport program.<br />

Passport testimonials:<br />

The <strong>Leadership</strong> Passport will not only look professional on my<br />

resume for future employers, but it will provide me with the skills I<br />

need to perform on the job as a nurse.<br />

MONIQUE WARREN<br />

It allowed me to get to the heart of what leadership means to<br />

me and the core values on which I stand, so I can operate from<br />

a position of strength.<br />

LEADING IN THE VIRTUAL WORLD<br />

Like all courses and services around the world, in mid-March, the CLA had to suddenly embrace a fully<br />

virtual learning experience. And... did we ever rise to the challenge! Our student superstars engaged with<br />

peers and with staff, sharing their stories of resilience, new ways of having fun and making a difference:<br />

• Student Leader Panel: How You Can Be a Leader Right Now<br />

• Toastmasters clubs’ weekly online meetings<br />

• Co-hosting Thursdays Together, a fun meets up where we played games, visited museums and<br />

chatted to no end, with the Experience Centennial Team<br />

• <strong>Leadership</strong> Passport Challenge – a hands-on opportunity to complete the <strong>Leadership</strong> Passport<br />

milestones fast and with live support from Ella Bates, our <strong>Leadership</strong> Specialist<br />

• Post-Retreat – we brought the <strong>Leadership</strong> Retreat participants together in April for some online<br />

connections, sharing and reflecting together after our February off-site experience.<br />

WHAT’S NEW FOR <strong>2020</strong>-2021<br />

The <strong>Leadership</strong> Café is a weekly hub for students to engage in leadership discussions. Each week at<br />

the Café we focus on a leadership topic and let the conversation flow from there. Students share their<br />

thoughts, feelings and experiences in a relaxed atmosphere. Some of our past themes include Service as a<br />

vehicle for leadership, <strong>Leadership</strong> is a process rather than a position, and <strong>Leadership</strong> is everywhere.<br />

The <strong>Leadership</strong> Café is a drop-in space, so join us whenever you can! More information at<br />

THANK YOU<br />

The leadership programs at the CLA are a result of joint efforts of teams and individuals dedicated to<br />

developing the best in others. We could not have experienced the personal and professional insights and<br />

connections we did if it were not for the collaboration of our Centennial family.<br />

A special thank you to the Co-Curricular Student Learning and Development team and our friends in<br />

Career Services and Co-Operative Education -- your support of all things leadership has made it possible<br />

for the CLA to pilot programs and activities with a true Centennial spirit and dedication. We succeed most<br />

meaningfully when others want us to succeed, and your engagement was a joy to experience.<br />

Our gratitude also to the members of the CLA’s Advisory Council – the leaders of other departments at<br />

Centennial, faculty and employers – for sharing this past (and the CLA’s first complete) year with us. Your<br />

perspective and your contributions will help shape what we do and how we understand and maximize<br />

our impact.<br />

Most of all, thank YOU, Centennial students of leadership, volunteers and peers dedicated to lifting others<br />

and developing your own potential. The time you invest in yourself while at Centennial is also a time when<br />

you make a difference in the lives of others through your example. We thank you for making Centennial<br />

and our leadership activities a part of your life journey.<br />

We look forward to more adventures in <strong>2020</strong>-21 and beyond,<br />
