Polaris Immersive

The Ultimate Youth Leadership Weekend

Want to change the world or your community? 

Want the skills, knowledge and experiences to decide your potential?

Without knowledge, a person has limited options. Without experiences, a person is confined emotionally. Without leadership, a person is not in charge of himself or herself.
Polaris Immersive is an opportunity to start or continue developing yourself as a leader. Immerse yourself in a weekend of leadership training with 45 other youth from Metro Vancouver. Be challenged and connected with your leadership potential.

Polaris Immersive is waiting for you.

Do I have to be away from home forever?

Nope, just for a weekend! If you have a part-time job, ask a co-worker to trade shifts. If you have soccer practice, let your coach know you’ll be missing it so you can be a better leader for your team. This weekend will give you new leadership experience (and the certificate of completion to prove it) for every aspect of your life, including your resume and university or college application!

How far away from home is this event?

Ryerson, our home on Thursday evening, is located in the Vancouver neighbourhood of Kerrisdale. Fircom, our home for Friday through Sunday, is located on Gambier Island, just 60 minutes from downtown Vancouver by public transit. (That includes a sweet 15-minute boat ride from Horseshoe Bay!)
