Youth leadership has been recognized by both the private and public sectors as a fundamental component to ensure the growth and sustainability of any organization or institution. For long-term success, organizations must be able to establish a base of young leaders able to meet the hard-hitting challenges of tomorrow. Quo Vadis aims to meet such challenges. It cultivates youth leadership in aspiring individuals while encouraging multi-cultural preservation and enhancement of the Polish culture in North America.

The Polish Students Society at the University of Ottawa and the Polish-Canadian Students Association of Windsor will be organizing the second annual Quo Vadis conference, themed Building Bridges, Building Leaders. It will take place in Windsor, Ontario (May 7-9, 2010), this event will profile a number of nationally and internationally distinguished guest speakers, each of whom will be addressing the gathered North-American delegation of students, graduates and young professionals.

The original Quo Vadis conference was the first step on the journey to bridging the gap between the younger and older generation of Polonia. It demonstrated that true strength of our Polish community lies in our ability to come together around the values that we all cherish: heritage, leadership and above all unity. These values are embodied in our Polonia institutions.

Quo Vadis is a celebration in what we have achieved together as the Polish Diaspora and what we are determined to achieve in the coming years. To continue making our mark on history, we must instil a sense of pride for what previous generations have already achieved.

We invite you to join our young leaders on this historic journey...
