Leader Counsellor/Youth Facilitator

Our elementary and intermediate courses have Leader Counsellors/Youth Facilitators (LC/YFs) as part of the course staff.  LC/YFs stay in cabins with students and are selected from a fine group of OELC graduates who have demonstrated exemplary leadership skills, compassion, reliability and maturity.

Please note that it is most common to be offered a position as a YF for only one session of an intermediate level course.  This is not a full-time summer position.
