Student chosen for leadership program

Comments

Dominik Sorensen

Dominik Sorensen, a Grade 8 student at Hillcrest Public School in Estevan, has been selected from students across Canada to participate in the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation Youth Leadership Program.

He took the initiative to seek out the program after attending a summer camp last summer in Kananaskis, Alberta. Dominik will be taking part in the first level of the youth leadership program this summer in Toronto.

“I like being a leader and helping people, and it's really fun to go there,” he said. “You get to meet a lot of new people, and you get to meet the counsellors.”

It's fun to help people, he said, and he enjoys setting a good example for his younger brother and sister.

Dominik leaves for Toronto on July 3, and he'll return to Estevan nine days later.

There are five levels in the program, which focuses on life and leadership skills, with a real community awareness element.

In order to qualify, Dominik had to fulfill a community service component, and he chose to collect non-perishable food items for the Estevan Salvation Army's food bank. He doesn't have a tally on much the food weighed, but he said he received a lot of donations.

Also this year, Hillcrest students Brady Slager and Brooklyn Rice were selected to attend a Tim Horton’s summer camp. The two girls will be flying to Alberta to attend the Tim Horton Children's Ranch, which opened in 1991.
