Vimy Inspires Tomorrow

History education meets leadership education. Vimy Inspires Tomorrow encourages youth between 13 and 17 years old to develop and utilize their leadership skills.

Why the Leadership Program?

Leadership during the First World War took on many forms and involved many individuals. This program encourages youth ages 13-17 to draw on lessons from history to examine, discuss, and exercise key leadership skills, all of which can be applied to their daily lives as young leaders in their communities. Youth can submit an idea for a project that benefits their community to be eligible for leadership training and a $2,500 project grant!
