The Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) is a mentorship program of The Vancouver Board of Trade which engages final year post secondary students with established professionals in Vancouver’s business community.
LOT selects top students in their final year from local post-secondary institutions. LOT sponsors engage their employees by connecting with today’s fresh talent and ensuring the continued success of the British Columbia Economy.
Students accepted into the LOT Program gain insight from business leaders, build professional relationships, and volunteer in their local community. Program Participants also receive a Vancouver Board of Trade Membership, offering them the opportunity to attend regular events to develop their skills and grow their network.
Through their involvement in the program students prepare to enter the workforce and develop the hands on skills to help them do so. The LOT Program is based on the four pillars of Mentorship, Volunteerism, Networking and Leadership.
