On an annual basis, COCHF provides a sponsorship for a co-op youth from our area to attend the Co-operative Young Leaders Camp (CYL), at no cost to the participant. Eligibility Criteria: The CYL Internship Recipient must live in a COCHF-member housing co-operative.
The CYL Summer Camp is a wonderful way for youth to boost their resume, make new friends, and create fun memories. We will pay the registration fee for one youth (ages 14-18) to attend a one-week summer camp experience by the lake!
CYL is a unique summer camp experience for youth ages 14-18. This series of week-long programs brings young people together from all across Ontario to learn about and practice the International co-operative principles, communication, and leadership through games, team building and community projects. For over 50 years, the Co-operative Young Leaders Program (CYL) has been educating and engaging youth in co-operatives. Since its inception in 1967, over 3,300 young people have gone through the program, thanks to the co-operatives and credit unions that have supported it over the years!
